Sidival FILA - Solo Show
19 Jun – 31 Jul. 2021

As Sidival Fila"s monumental polyptych, originally made for the last Venice Biennale, just joined the collection of the Vatican Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Jérôme Poggi is pleased to announce the fifth solo exhibition of the Brazilian artist and Franciscan monk at the gallery (born 1962 in Brazil. Lives and works at the Convento di San Bonaventura al Palatino, Rome).

Although his work is partly related to a formal history of European minimalism, especially in Italy (Spatialism and Arte Povera), it is also characterized by a peculiar attention to the materials he uses. Whether those are antique or industrial fabrics, found objects that he cares for, bandages, sews or sutures, Fila is driven by a desire to perform what he calls a "redemption of matter".

The exhibition will run from June 19th to July 31st, 2021
