Exhibitions by Manuele Cerutti and Emiliano Ponzi

Goodbye Dolce Vita

Exhibitions: a new lay-out of Manuele Cerutti’s show Proprioception, and a display of Emiliano Ponzi’s tables for The Journey of the Penguin.

Manuele Cerutti (b. 1976) is an Italian artist based in Turin, who has already a long and rich exhibition history, characterised by international collaborations, with numerous exhibitions in prestigious institutions and galleries, including the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo (Turin), GAM (Turin), 401contemporary (Berlin) and Guido Costa Project (Turin).

In the series of works presented in London, human figuration has been absorbed by the object, which not only represents a human extension, but has gained his/her most peculiar faculties. From these works, there emerges a proposal for a new way of looking at the world of objects. As if they were something with a meaning that goes beyond the use they are able to provide; something that has its own subjectivity, and that goes a long way to affirm and defend it. It thus seems natural to interpret actual ‘proprioceptive’ behaviours, in the objects depicted within this body of work, such as the adoption of unusual postures (different than those we give them when we use them): the laborious maintenance of immobility – but also tests and exercises of balance.

Emiliano Ponzi illustrated a touching story without words in 42 tables, each of which occupies a double page of the book The Journey of the Penguin. Ponzi, 36 years old, is one of the most appreciated illustrators in Italy and abroad. He collaborates with many publications including La Repubblica, Feltrinelli, Le Monde, The New York Times, The New Yorker.

To celebrate its 80 years, one of the most renowned publishing house in the world – Penguin Books – has published a book by the Italian artist and illustrator Emiliano Ponzi. It is focused on the story of the famous hallmark of the Penguin Book: the penguin which gives the name to the publishing house. According to the company story, was the secretary of the founder Allen Lane to suggest it as symbol. An employee of the company was then sent to the London Zoo in Regent’s Park to draw some pictures of the penguins, producing what have would then become the wildly popular logo on the successful pocket books published by Penguin.
