Bertozzi and Casoni, hailing from Emilia Romagna, are ceramic masters with the talent of creating forms that are more real than the real thing. From March 25 to September 24, 2017, they will present the “Minimi Avanzi” exhibition, curated by Stefano Papetti, Elisa Mori, Giorgia Berardinelli and Silvia Bartolini, in Ascoli Piceno’s Pinacoteca civica. The exhibition looks at food in all of its forms, including leftovers, waste, and scraps, as well as scattered, daily items, such as flowers, butterflies, animals, newspapers, all dismembered and reassembled in unusual, hyperrealistic still life arrangements made of colourful porcelain. There are 24 varying works throughout the Pinacoteca, winding their way through the traditional rooms. “Minimi Avanzi” reveals an up-to-date, hyperrealist commentary, almost surreal, which expertly transforms the ephemeral into shocking works of art frozen in time.
