Performance and installation

Curated by Paola Tognon, promoted by Contemporary Locus

Francesca Grilli is pleased to be amongst the artists awarded the Italian Council 9th Edition 2020, an initiative of the DGAAP of the Ministry for Culture for the promotion of Italian art on the international stage.

Sparks 2021, performance and installation, in line with Francesca Grilli’s investigation of life cycles and the body as evidence of endurance to time and symbol of its own vulnerability, overturns the power relation between child and adult.
