Elegy

- Isla (lasitud) 2022. Oil, nails and fishhooks on linen mounted on wooden panel, 165 x 240 cm.

Galleria Continua is pleased to present 'Elegy', the first solo exhibition of Yoan Capote in Rome. All the artworks of this exhibition coincide in their deeply conceptual and emotional approach to Landscape. Here we can appreciate the dialogue that is created between different bodies of work and some sculptures that expand Capote’s iconic seascapes towards a wider, global spectrum of reflection by underscoring the values, symbolism, and cultural importance of the culled materials used to create the paintings: recycled fishhooks, broken chains, wire fences, deconstructed barbed wire, gold leaf, plaster, and others.
Although all the pieces in this show reflect on migration, from a local and universal perspective, they also take on meanings with social and political overtones.
