Arkad Foundation Gallery, Seravezza (LU)
The theme of Enoliarte 2006 that inspired the works of the artists beneath the banner of one single creative concept was " Marble, Pleasure, Food ".
Sixty-four artists from over 15 different nations offered the public works of painting, photography, sculpture, installations and videos with the intent of recovering the material nature and the aesthetic and emotional values of food.
White Marble from the Apuan Alps, the sculptor's favorite material, was paired with Food, the universal stimulant of the senses, observed in its perennial transformation into Pleasure and gratification.
Pleasure, on the other hand, was nourished with chocolate and olive oil, two substances whose aphrodisiacal properties have been known for ages.
The narrative theatrical performance "Narrar di gusto" organized in collaboration with Osteria Teatro L'Atalante with Gianluca Orlandini and Vincenzo Levante as narrators and Lapo Marliani on guitar was staged on Sunday, April 23.
The exhibition was brought to conclusion with an auction that let collectors bid for the works on display.
