The Three Disgraces ( 2015, marble, cm 23x30x4, one piece, equipped with an handmade iron frame, adaptable to the wall ) is a clear quote from “The Three Graces” by scultor Bertel Thorvaldsen in 1821, in a detail of the hearse monumento of Andrea Appiani, held in Milan at the Pinacoteca di Brera.
Here the artist wants to emphizese that the concept of Beauty and Fair are often tools used for electioneering agitprop, but in the social realm there’s not a real pursuit of those meaning as purpose of a better living.
Ironically, the artist indicates an earlier decadence in the looking of the Three Women, placing a skeleton instead of an Angel, with the meaning of figure out the empty promises of Beauty and Justice made during political election campaign and never maintained.
