“Gare de L’Est” at Anatomical Theater of Padua, Palazzo del Bo, Padua

For the first time ever, works by Alberto Burri (Città di Castello, 1915 – Nice, 1995) from the Fondazione Palazzo Albizzini Collezione Burri will be shown alongside pieces by Nicola Samorì (Forlì, 1977) and Gustave Joseph Witkowski (Nevers, 1844 – Paris, 1922) at the University of Padua’s Anatomical theatre and the Cucina Anatomica, where students once prepared the corpses for anatomy lessons. Inaugurated in 1595 under the direction of the renowned anatomy professor Girolamo Fabrici d’Acquapendente, Padua’s Anatomical Theater ranks as the oldest surviving original structure of its kind.

With eyesight and vision as the central themes, the exhibition Gare de l’Est aims to highlight the extraordinary heritage of Anatomical Theaters as a whole and to suggest new interpretations through a series of temporary exhibitions, developed together with specialists.

In the show a marble root withholds a lunar fragment, vivified by the proximity to the epidermal surface of a Cretto by Alberto Burri.

Curated by Chiara Ianeselli in collaboration with Giovanna Valenzano and Maurizio Rippa Bonati, and under the patronage of the Università degli Studi di Padova, the project follows on from those organised at the de Waag Anatomical Theater of Amsterdam (Gare du Nord) and at the Archiginnasio di Bologna Anatomical Theater (Gare du Sud).
