Library Shelf Location 18.BOVE
Publication Date 2014

The exhibition Carol Bove / Carlo Scarpa brings together sculptures by American artist Carol Bove (b. 1971) and rarely seen sculptural experiments and exhibition furniture by Venetian architect and exhibition designer Carlo Scarpa (1906-78).

Produced in collaboration with Museion, Bolzano and Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Deurle, this exhibition investigates how the ways in which objects and artworks are displayed gives them meaning.

The pairing reveals how Bove and Scarpa are bound by their concern for the encounter with sculpture and an attention to materials. At the centre is a new setting by Bove for a series of objects made by Scarpa for the 1968 Venice Biennale. Alongside this, a selection of Bove's sculptures made between 2003 and 2013 join museum vitrines and easels by Scarpa, as well as laboratory tests for his masterwork, the Brion Tomb.

The catalogue features essays by Pavel S. Pyś, 'Carol Bove / Carlo Scarpa'; Philippe Duboÿ, 'Carlo Scarpa, 'L'Enchanteur pourrissant''; and Andrea Phillips, 'Carol Bove, the Psychic and the Civic'. All text is available simultaneously in English, Italian, Dutch and German.

The Henry Moore Institute presentation of Carol Bove / Carlo Scarpa is supported by the Graham Foundation for the Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
