Bruno Liberatore in environmental dialogue with Trajan's markets

14/12/2014 - 12/04/2015
Mercati di Traiano Museo dei Fori Imperiali

The exhibition marks Bruno Liberatore's return to Rome and highlights his search for a dialogue between sculptures and the context, in this particular case with an ancient monument of great beauty.

The conflicting, but fascinating, relationship between man and environment are represented through Bruno Liberatore’s forms and volumes, confirming to be one of the most original contemporary Italian sculptors. Abstract compositions that evoke associations with living nature, not imagined as a background of an event but as the "substance of sculpture."
Twenty-five sculpturessome of which the artist has recently created, some have already been exposed –  dialogue with the ancient walls of via Biberatica and the tabernae in the Trajan's Markets, in an ideal and evocative location.
The works, made of large bronze, iron and terracotta, occupy the external area of Trajan's Markets facing the Roman Forum and the Capitol Hill, "emerging" from the ground and developing towards the sky with the delimited area of the ancient walls and in close relationship to them.
