Edouard Malingue Gallery is thrilled to announce the presentation of a new solo project by Jeremy Everett as part of the curatorial exhibition GRANPALAZZO in Zagarolo, Italy in the outskirts of Rome. Situated in the 16th century Palazzo Rospigliosi’s resplendent Sala dei Motti, the tripartite oeuvre responds to the site’s rich history and evocative lyricism.
Conceived specifically for GRANPALAZZO, Jeremy Everett will present ‘Untitled (il maestro)’ (2016) in the 16th century Sala dei Motti, a sound installation that alludes to the Palazzo Rospigliosi’s aura and history: a slab of marble or monumental architecture appears to have fallen on the keyboard of an electric organ, producing a continuous vibrating note that haunts the space; ‘Untitled (42)’ (2016), an exact replica of the pair of red loafers worn by Pope Benedict XVI created by designer Adriano Stefanelli; and ‘Untitled (pilastro)’ (2016) which acts as a surreal prop inspired by Fellini’s Roma’s Vatican Fashion Show.
Everett’s ability in creating a poetical narrative is evident. His work is hypnotic, transcendental and disturbing whilst simultaneously pervading a mesmerising quality. Subtle yet direct, it does not spell out what should be seen but rather opens one’s mind to numerous transformative possibilities. Each work exists as the fragment of a sentence, a lyrical exposé, released into the world with precise abandon; the visual confrontation of a new world that exists within yet beyond our own.
