Patrizia Pepe headquarters – a haven of art
Over the years, the headquarters of Patrizia Pepe have strengthened the link with contemporary culture through hosting art exhibitions within its offices. And it is in this vein that we welcome the new installation by Nicola Bolla “SANCTUARY”.
Three important pieces by Nicola Bolla are exhibited in the lobby of the Patrizia Pepe headquarters. Two large feathered wings made from playing cards which cover a resin frame, spread open high above, on the right wall, as though almost taking flight.
In the clear marble of the flooring, at the foot of the grand red, sweeping staircase, a large circle of black earth and bone, emerging from the “grave”, human bones bejewelled with white Swarovski crystals, mounted on a small metal mesh, glittering on the black. A brilliant magical earth.
On the other side of the entrance hall, opposite the wings, a work in card, a mixed technique in which pigments, treated with a special alchemical process, appear like “relics”.
A “sanctuary”, where mythology, vanitas, and magic redefine the space, restoring a deeper meaning.
