Wunderkammern Gallery Presents: JonOne “Niente può fermarmi” (Rome, Italy)

Read from the press release below:

Wunderkammern is pleased to present Niente può fermarmi, solo show of the artist JonOne

Curated by Giuseppe Pizzuto

Opening Saturday 17th March 2018, 6.30 pm – 9.30 pm

Palazzo Velli – Piazza di S. Egidio, 10, 00153 Rome

17th March – 14th April 2018

After his first solo show in the Milanese gallery of Wunderkammern in 2016, JonOne arrives at Rome in the prestigious frame of Palazzo Velli in Trastevere. French by naturalization, JonOne is one of the most important contemporary artists and a key figure in the world of graffiti. His works have been exhibited in famous institutions such as Cartier Foundation and Grand Palais in Paris. He boasts collaborations with international brands such as Lacoste, Perrier, Air France and Guerlain. Hardly definable with a single art movement, his production is the result of the perfect union between graffiti and abstract expressionism. Between calligraphy and performative use of color.

Niente può fermarmi” is the first solo show by JonOne in Rome and the first exhibition of Wunderkammern organized to be hosted at Palazzo Velli. Cogito Ergo Sum, as Descartes has said. Scribo Ergo Sum, would say JonOne. It is impossible to explain which is the energy leading a writer to tag on all walls of his city and on walls of all cities in the world. We can only try to imagine that the energy pushing to a perfect style research, with a nearly monastic study – besides challenging laws of the so-called civil society – is something which creates addiction. Pushing to do it. And then re-do it. And then re-do it again. And making you never want to stop. The only strength that can push to do such an extreme, revolutionary, uncalled gesture, is the unbreakable need to remind everyone, and first of all to oneself, that we are there. There and in that moment, and in all moments when who will pass by will read that name.

The exhibition is part of the planning of “La Francia in scena”, artistic season of the Institut français Italia.
