Catalogue de l'exposition Francesco Vezzoli. Le lacrime dei poeti, présentée à la Collection Lambert en Avignon (2 mars - 10 juin 2019).
Conceived with the artist, the exhibition features a group of about twenty of his recent sculptures, some created especially for Avignon. The sculptures are presented in dialogue with series of emblematic works by Cy Twombly, Giulio Paolini and Louise Lawler, all influenced by mythology.
Through the sensitive, unique dialogues with the classical heritage generated by these artists' radical gestures, through Francesco Vezzoli’s works - consisting of ancient sculptures bought in auction houses for his transformation, rearrangement and completion - it is not only a question of observing how different generations of artists confront the history of 2000-year-old artworks, but also of sketching the outlines of the very notion of the contemporary in art.
