Roberta Busato | sculpture in alabaster
curated by Eleonora Raspi
created with Matteo Brioni
Palazzo dei Priori, Volterra
04 September – 7 November 2021
After a long-time working with raw earth and modeling tools, Roberta Busato (Verona, 1976) approaches the Volterra “stone” for the first time, creating a series of new and enigmatic faces in agate, white alabaster and bardiglio. The artist’s new solo show, ENLIGHTENED STONE, unfolds the passages of a ritual performed by the artist in the presence of the material found in the territory: observation, excavation, discovery of the soul.
