The show

Castello di Rivoli inaugurates the second chapter of its program of contemporary art commissions in homage to the Cerruti Collection, initiated in May 2019 to celebrate the opening to the public of this extraordinary collection.

New artworks by Ed Atkins, Alex Cecchetti, Nalini Malani, and Michael Rakowitz join the works by Anna Boghiguian, Camille Henrot, Liu Ding, Giulio Paolini,Giuseppe Penone, Susan Philipsz, and Seth Price, presented last May in the first chapter of the series.

Interested in the unseen side of the Cerruti Collection – the collector’s “desire” –, Alex Cecchetti presents a delicate fabric made using some of the artist’s paintings – stitched together like precious cloth. They portray plants and sensual flowers valued for their healing properties, yet commonly considered as undesirable weeds to be ripped out. Another work by Cecchetti also addresses the erotic nature and intelligence of plants. Both a cabinet and a collection with over sixty erotic drawings, it is displayed as a counterpoint to the fabric and resonating with the Cerruti Collection. Untitled (2019), a painting on board realized for the occasion by Ed Atkins, offers another, personal interpretation of the art collector’s “desire” – an ironic and uncanny image of the collection as a self-portrait by proxy, an autobiography and public display of one’s inner world.
