Ileana Florescu: The Rooms of the Garden

26 April–27 May 2018

Exhibition Overview

Maiestate tantum

The Rooms of the Garden is part of the project of Muriel Mayette-Holtz, director of the French Academy in Rome-Villa Medici, to enhance and narrate the artistic and cultural heritage of the institution through the attentive gaze and sensitivity of contemporary artists.

Curated by Cristiano Leone, the exhibition presents seventeen light-boxes, quadrangular structures in which the artist mixes art and nature, moving from a series of photographs related to the life of Cardinal Ferdinando de 'Medici during his stay in Rome, from 1577 to 1588.
