Item description for Adrian Tranquilli: Heroes by David Aaron & Adrian Tranquilli...
Sure they're heroes. But are they super? Heroes presents the work of Adrian Tranquilli, one of the most interesting artists on the Italian contemporary art scene. Tranquilli's work is a re-creation of images from different contexts, an original and poetic universe of signs that emphasizes the state of emergency of contemporary society's cultural models. Christ is lying, crucified, with Batman's symbol blazing across his chest. And Yoda, of Star Wars fame, is dressed exactly like the Pope. Essays by Jim Lee, Ida Magli, Enrico Fornaroli, and Gianluca Marziani.
Interview by Nina Vagic.
