• ANATOMY , DRIFTWOOD AND SKELETONS


SISSI 2012 

IL NAUFRAGO: ONDEGGIA UBRIACO PERDENDO LA TESTA 

On show at Collezioni Comunali d'Arte di Bologna Feb- March 2015.

The artist reproduced the human skeleton by using small fragments of driftwood found on beaches.

I have written before on this blog about Sissi's Manifesto Anatomico her art being closely linked to anatomy.   Her real name is Daniela Olivieri and her studio is in Bologna, one of the oldest medical university towns and therefore home to several collections of anatomical specimens.

With thanks to Arte my favourite art magazine.
