64 artworks within an artwork. The project for the Ab Ovo second edition is set in the space of Aldobrandini stables in Frascati, work by Fuksas office. The solution for the exhibition renounces to any affirmative posture, it is dissolved, in a homeopathic way, into the space without denying the stratification of languages and signs, looking for a dialogue with the architectural structure and the museum collection. Each piece finds its natural place establishing an unprecedented relationships with the space and the archaeological section in a continuous return of looks and quotations. In this way the clay sculptures of Lari and Penati, the Constantine marble head, the man head by Celestino, the Cross by Kounellis, the magic carpet by Fuksas, the headless statues hanging on the magenta wall or the Orizzontovale by Nunzio are juxtaposed, in a sort of equalization of signs and images, that builds a new suspended space in-between art, architecture and archeology.
