I Peccati

Oct 15, 2020 — May 23, 2021 | Villa Medici: The French Academy, Rome

Johan Creten made his mark in the 1980s with his innovative use of ceramics. Today he is considered a leading figure in his renewal in the field of contemporary art. Another side of his work, he uses bronze with virtuosity for the realization of monumental sculptures, including a major example: “De Vleermuis - The Bat”, that is presented in the gardens of the Villa Medici. 

The exhibition “I Peccati” brings together, for the first time and with such breadth in Italy, a collection of fifty-five works by the artist, in bronze, ceramic and resin.
