Parole Viaggianti - Angela Cavalieri's travelling words

Curated by Wendy Garden and Alana O’Brien

Angela Cavalieri’s work explores the art of writing and storytelling. In this exhibition Cavalieri draws on her Italian heritage, using text from authors such as Boccaccio, Dante Alighieri, Italo Calvino and Luigi Pirandello. Their words are recreated in Cavalieri’s work as images, which evokes the relationship between words as graphic elements and the meanings that we symbolically attach to them. This exhibition brings together key works in Cavalieri’s ongoing exploration of the relationship between language, cultural memory and subjectivity. Exhibition organised in conjunction with Maroondah Art Gallery.
