Exploring nature. Lynette Yiadom-Boakye and James Richards talk about V-A-C Collection
Written by Delphine Trouillard   

rc_8563-modifica-835x557.jpgArtists Lynette Yiadom-Boakye and James Richards offer visitors a representation of nature, from flora and fauna to the expression of the human condition.

 

Produced in cooperation with Whitechapel Gallery in London and curated by Iwona Blazwick, The Explorers. Part One at Palazzo delle Zattere shows 35 pieces, the first part of a larger project to re-think V-A-C, a corpus in continuous development that comprises art by top-tier artists like Francis Bacon, David Hockney, Andy Warhol and Amedeo Modigliani

 

Lynette YiadomBoakye is a figurative artist. She studied Aristarkh Lentulov, Enrico David, Gary Hume and is able to depict the human figure as part of its natural environment and as a metaphor of primordial energy and libido.

 

James Richard won the Turner Prize in 2014. His art is a mix of video, sculpture, and sound installation. Again, human nature is the theme of the immersive soundscape presented at the second floor, To Replace a Minute’s Silence with a Minute’s Applause (2015), which originates from Francis Bacon’s Study for a Portrait of 1953. Richards’ pieces translate painting into symphony.

 

In the garden at V-A-C is Sudest 1401, an ethnic restaurant open every day 8 to 11 and a testimony to migrants and their travel to Italy, the doorstep to Europe.
