The Angel Orensanz Foundation, in partnership with the Italian Cultural Institute, invites you to a special presentation of Angel’s project, “The Floating Sistine Chapel” and Angel Orensanz in Italy on December 1st at the Italian Cultural Institute on Park Avenue.
“The Floating Sistine Chapel” was conceptually created around Achille Bonito Oliva’s theme “The Joyous Instability of Art,” written for the Palermo exhibition where Angel participated in 2008.
“Instability is the true essence of contemporary art… Orensanz’s works never reveal their beginning and end. The concept does not prevail over the object. It is the fruit of a web which weaves together the memory of culture and the memory of nature… This is the essence of Orensanz’s topicality: with his vibrant clarity he anticipated various forms of awareness among which also those of the Transvanguardia with regard to art’s interior nature.”- Achille Bonito Oliva, on Angel Orensanz.
