— Lu Song
October 30 — January 06, 2019
The pavilion 9A of the Mattatoio, will host the first exhibition in Europe by the Chinese painter Lu Song (Beijing, 1982), curated by Ludovico Pratesi. Lu Song’s works are figurative canvases that are inspired by an observant and poignant analysis of European art history, focusing in particular on the notion of landscape that the artist transforms into evocative sceneries, blending the surreal and the fantastic with the factual and logical. The large-scale canvases in the exhibition are almost homage to German romanticism and the works of great masters of the time such as Caspar David Friedrich and Arnold Bocklin – whom lived in Rome and interpreted the world of ancient roman classicism with a hint of demure and nostalgic northern soul.
