This sequence of shows for Glory Hole was designed based on this proposition of beauty as attraction, combining humiliation and exaltation, fear and pleasure, a transformative and primordial experience in everyone’s life.


Banished by the claims of modernism, beauty still assails us to this day. Here we retrieve it not as a quality, but rather as an imposition. “Things are their own planets, and have their own geology,” says Lars Spuybroek. Small, large, ethereal, ephemeral, natural or artificial, things are not only perceived, but experienced in their atmosphere. They radiate affective fields. These aesthetic encounters occur in a world that resists the idea of being crystallized in fixed forms, in a world whose greatest vocation is its flip side. 


Verzutti's work proposes a celebration of physical reality, something from the sphere of the stone, the fruit or the beast. An image about the allegorical nature of love, of beauty, of sex, presented in the form of this body, at the same time strange and intimate, anarchic and personal. The choices that rule these combinations do not give up humor, and this Venus, while letting herself to be adored, sweats.
