Fiorenza The Headless
and the others
The western open gallery, in the room that leads to Venus Fiorenza’s study, contains a wide variety of artworks, digital prints, and installations rich of inspiration and sensations which mix different techniques and genres. Santanni reinterprets Venus Fiorenza as an extra-ordinary icon, symbol, and expression of new values, through a sort of itinerary of different stages made of digital compositions, combinations and irreverent revisited versions of the statue. Her artwork was inspired by street art, pop art, advertisement, and fashion. It uses the bronze statue of the Flemish artist Giambologna as the main character and transforms it into the muse and the aesthetic subject of the project The Headless.
