The Catalan artist Robert Llimós is the protagonist of a double exhibition, by which Fondazione Pastificio Cerere and Nando Peretti Foundation, Delegació a Catalunya pay homage to his forty-year-long career: firstly, in Rome, from March 15th to April 16th 2016, at Fondazione Pastificio Cerere and Spazio Cerere; later in Barcelona, in June 2016, in the artist’s atelier-home. The whole exhibition project, which is named VEURE, is curated by Marcello Smarrelli and the two locations are set up in cooperation with the architectural firm stARTT. This is a traveling exhibit that was conceived as a tale. Its purpose is allowing the audience to familiarize with Llimós’ research and poetry, which are able to amuse and make people think, thanks to the favorite subjects in the artist’s latest production: aliens.
On the occasion of his first personal exhibition in Italy, Llimós presents more than 50 works –paintings, sculptures, engravings and drawings. These works represent, in a nearly obsessive way, enigmatic melancholic creatures, coming from different galaxies, which are unsettling and familiar at the same time.
