STRANATOMIE
 
These sculptures are parts of a works’ cycle, which is called “Stranatomie”, game of words for “strange and bizarre anatomies”; this is because man anatomies are influenced by anatomies of genetically modified animals and insects. Each sculpture hides , in an enigmatic way, alchemical symbolisms that represent stories of Greek and Roman legendary figures. The tales narrated in Ovid’s “Metamorphosis” inspire the sculptures represented by Alessandro Boezio.
 
An example of these stories is Aracne Futura where, in Ovid’s myth, it is narrated that Aracne challenges the god Athena in a weaving contest, but he is transformed from god to spider, and forced to weave cobwebs for all his life.




Arcane Futura, 2012, Fondazione Museo Pino Pascali




Pleiades, 2014



Another examples about it: the “Seven Sisters” in greek “Pleiades”, that for the greek mythology represent the seven daughters of Atlante and Pleione. The myth says that at first they were transformed in doves and then in stars by Orion.
 
For example, in the mythology, Iblis it’s the equivalent of Satan; originally he was an angel in paradise, and later he was punished for disobeying God’s order to honor Adam, thus transformed to a demon.




IBLIS, 2015, withe ceramic
 


Like in a wise operation that has renaissance features, all the visible aspects cover a multitude of invisible concepts in golden accent. The arts, the anatomies conceal links between alchemy, symbolism and spiritualism. The used materials are ceramic or porcelain for small sculptures and fiberglass for larger sculptures.

Biography



ALESSANDRO BOEZIO
 
Born in Foggia in 1983, he lives and works in Milan.
 
Polyhedric Sculptor, experienced art forms in an intriguing game between real and illusory. The poetics of the impossible and the philosophy of the artificial, the optical illusion of mimesis and the search for connections flow into grotesque works connoted by 'metaphorical allusion and conceptual practice. Interpretation of archetypal symbols and mythological tales creates strange anatomies in sculptures made with multiple materials and environmental installations characterized by the presence of the golden thread.
