A single artist monopolizes this room: Antonio Marras. Known as a stylist, he has always combined his professional activity with a prolific artistic production which was recently celebrated in a major exhibition at the Milan Triennial. Marras’s work is an installation, the content of which interweaves closely with the other works in the room. Le malelingue [Malicious Tongues] is an installation consisting of a cascade of darting tongues flowing from a great pile of books. The work is inspired by one of Marras’s best loved artists, Carol Rama. The reiterating tongues extending over the space appear as an ironic condemnation of the “private vice” of gossip, which embraces far from beneficial forms of public conduct.
