Fairy-tale and Suffering

26 November 2016 – 5 March 2017

Curated by Fondazione Franco Maria Ricci and CoviliArte

Rural society, in our time, has attained a certain myth-like status, and Covili, like Homer before him, addresses both its magical qualities and the struggle inherent in it. The fairy-tale aspect and the suffering. He revisits motifs and softens things, but his distortion of images and subjects drawn from memory never results in caricature or the grotesque, nor is it naïve: his expressionistic fairy tales invites us to look beyond appearances. 

Covili’s original, poetic style comes through in more than thirty works, carefully selected by Franco Maria Ricci in collaboration with the artist’s estate.
