Rome is one of my very favorite places, and I had the great pleasure of spending a few days there at the end of December. A visit to the relatively new Maxxi museum was on my list of things to see this time. I had not checked to see what exhibitions were on display, since I wanted to see the building itself: I had planned an architectural trip to see the work of Zaha Hadid.To my surprise, I stumbled upon a very famous compatriot, as Maxxi has a large Jan Fabre exhibition showing documents, installations, statues and films on the artist's performances. If you are interested in knowing more or discovering his work, read the information in the link below from which I am borrowing the following quote:
"Constantly at its core is the artist himself, from body to mind and both examined, scoured and indeed tormented inch by inch. Although already clear from the videos of his performances – initially body-art experiments but then complex theatre performances – the full realisation comes from observation of the expanse of drawings, notes, objects and thinking models that fill the exhibition space".
