“November 14, 2015 – February 1, 2016: Anatomical Theatre of the Archiginnasio, Bologna, Piazza Galvani 1.
The project Les Gares finds its second venue at the Anatomical Theatre of the Archiginnasio in Bologna with the exhibition of Nicola Samorì titled Gare du Sud (November 14, 2015 – February 1, 2016). Gare du Sud is in direct dialogue with the first show held in Amsterdam, Gare du Nord (July 16 – August 15, 2015), which launched this international research.
If in Amsterdam the anatomization had yet to start since the figure of Nicola Samorì placed at the centre of the theatre was still standing, criminal and surgeon at the same time, the visitor is welcomed in Bologna when the operation is at an advanced stage. In the “room for the function of Anatomy”, “venue for the control of the truth and for the contemplation of each open secret” the artist has performed the first cuts, raising the decaying organs from the figure resting on the dissecting table. The sculpture is in dialogue with an altarpiece placed on the chair, where the lector was used to holdhis dispute, presenting the unfolding of the dissection process. Samorì desired to occupy both sides, in an act that considers the history of the theatre in its various actors and in its various phases.”
