Alessandro Turoni's exhibition explores life in all its components: flesh, bones as well as fragility and pride in the face of climate change.
Nature faces its own mortality and its own end in the face of climate catastrophe.
Due to our industrial follies, human nature is shown as incomplete and distorted. The discomfort of human mortality leads men to commit further violence against nature, and themselves.
How we can break the cycle of violence and live in peace with ourselves, our planet and all living creatures?
About the artist
Alessandro Turoni was born in 1986 in Forli, Italy. He attended the Art Institute where he started to learn plastic and painting techniques as well as he researched new ways of expression: photography, collages and painting all collided in his first exposition in 2007.
He worked with Bonci’s Theater in Cesena until he became, from 2008 to 2010, head scenographer. Graduated with honor at the Academy of Fine Arts, he flew to Algeria and worked with Mme. Goi at “Pan African Festival”, he also worked with maestro Edoardo Sanchi. Alessandro won the award that gave him the opportunity to design Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” displayed in Verona Arena and soon fell in love with sculpture and started experimenting with zoomorphic figures, collaborating with L’oro dei Farlocchi, exhibiting his works in Zurich and in Milan’s Salone del Mobile.
Today he teaches in Bologna’s Academy of Fine Arts and pursues his love of art.
