Curated by Eleonora Raspi for Kalpa Art Living
Created with MATTEO BRIONI
4 September - 7 November 2021
Sala del Giudice Conciliatore, Palazzo dei Priori (Volterra)

The stone radiates, it tells stories and reveals itself to the artist.

After a long-time working with raw earth and modelling tools, Roberta Busato (Verona, 1976) approaches Volterra Alabaster for the first time, creating a series of new and enigmatic faces in agate, white alabaster and bardiglio. Her new solo show, ENLIGHTENED STONE, unfolds the passages of a ritual performed by the artist in the presence of the material found in the territory: observation, excavation, the discovery of the soul. As the only interpreter of its message, Busato acts as an emotional vehicle between her audience and the stone.

The represented entities in the exhibition are connected not to a single mythology, but to archetypal mythological figures of a past feeling, in which man lived harmoniously with Nature and the Divine. Etruscan Volterra, the undisputed capital of Alabaster, is the setting of the exhibition and source of inspiration. Installed in the Sala del Giudice Conciliatore of Palazzo dei Priori, the lightly sculpted heads harmoniously dialogue with the theatrical fifth behind them, created by the designer Matteo Brioni: an imposing raw-earth wall in black pepper color, finely conceived in his Gonzaga company. In the foreground, five sculptures in the process of transformation, connecting two historical times betwixt completeness and incompleteness.

The visitor is invited to participate in a real theatrical act, performing a sort of rite of passage, once having crossed the threshold of the hall, to become an active participant in the scene. “As if captured in a state of ecstasy, the heads are thoughtful, detached from daily materiality. This, then, is a theatrical representation of a metamorphosis”, points out Eleonora Raspi. Each sculpture tells a story of the soil’s different minerals and chemical composition, revealed through the shades of colour or its veins. Alabaster itself is at the centre of the artist’s investigation, and consequently, the exhibition shows five of its different varieties rich in inclusions, hydroxides and metal oxides: Bardiglio, Agata Chiara, Agata Scura, Agata and Agata Macchiata.

On show from the 4th of September to the 7th of November 2021, ENLIGHTENED STONE is curated by Eleonora Raspi and organised by Kalpa Art Living in collaboration with Anima Silvae Cultural Association; it enjoys the patronage of Regione Toscana and the Municipality of Volterra, and the support of Matteo Brioni di Gonzaga, Locatelli Saline di Volterra and Romano Bianchi Alabastro di Volterra.
