Lucia Pizzani @ Cecilia Brunson Projects

4 May 2019 - 8 June 2019

 ‘Coraza’ by Lucía Pizzani is a new body of work developed over the last two years and from her recently completed residency at the Marso Foundation in Mexico.

The title, ‘Coraza’ (translated – ‘armour’), references the ceremony to the Aztec god of rebirth, Xipe Totec. As part of the ritual to celebrate the start of the corn cropping season, Aztec priests would peel the skin from defeated warriors before donning their flayed skins. Pizzani became fascinated by the ancient ceremony, and this exhibition is her parallel exploration into regeneration, transformation and metamorphosis through ceramics, photography, installation, collage and video.
