The catalogue was published on the occasion of the finissage of Marta Dell’Angelo’s solo exhibition AFRODITE A, which occupied the three floors of Assab One from the end of May to the beginning of September 2019, with new and site-specific works and re-interpretations of previous projects and installations.

The book traces the various environments in which the exhibition and the different performances took place and restores the evocative atmosphere, articulated in different but always coherent forms, created by the artist.


Marta Dell’Angelo (Pavia, 1970)

The focus of Marta Dell’Angelo investigation is centred on the human body-its gestures, its postures- and embraces neurosciences and anthropology insights. As an artist she uses and masters many different languages, from painting and drawing to video and photography, to installations and performances. She has taken part in the Moskow Biennale (2004), Tirana Biennale (2009), Thessaloniki Biennale ( 2013), the first Triennale dedicated to contemporary art of Armenia (2017). Her works have been exhibited in several galleries amd museums in Italy and abroad: in Milano at PAC Padiglione di Arte Contemporanea, at Palazzo Reale, at Palazzo delle Stelline, at Museo del Novecento, at Mediateca di Santa Teresa, at the Triennale, in Rome at MACRO; in Gallarate at MAGA, in Bolzano at Museion, in Torino at Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, in Bologna at MAMbo and at Nosadelladue, in Camogli at Fondazione Remotti, in Genova at Museo di Villa Croce; in Florence at Srisa; in Venezia at Palazzo Fortuny; in Berlin at Medizin Historisches Museum, in Madrid at Istituto Italiano di Cultura, in Bruxelles at Fondaco, in San Francisco at Istituto italiano di Cultura and at CCC. She has published the books Manuale della figura umana (ed. Gli Ori, 2007) and, in collaboration with Ludovica Lumer, C’è da Perderci la testa (ed. Laterza). Her works are present in several private and public collections.
