Fabio Mauri, Palazzo Reale, Milan, Italy

Fabio Mauris formal materials and resources are sober, direct and immediately evoking the sacred. His works are a reflection on art and man, evidence of poetic reflections that have always been at the center of his fascinating work.

Fabio Mauri, Muro occidentale o del pianto, installation of 400×400×60 cm, Room 31, Palazzo Reale, Milan, Italy

Installations, videos, documents and photographs of the last thirty years are exhibited at Palazzo Reale in a journey dedicated to an artist who is considered a teacher for the younger generations: a strongly contemporary author, capable of acting and experiencing multiple forms of expression and making no concessions to mere consent.

Fabio Mauri, I numeri malefici, Room 37, Palazzo Reale, Milan, Italy

A powerful and poetic path in which the word memory is not mired in the past, but becomes a warning signal for future possible events.

The severe atmosphere created by the cold and austere exhibition design matches Fabio Mauris sharp artworks. The rooms of Palazzo Reale reveal themselves as hospitable, uncanny, discreet spaces.
