Imran Qureshi

30 October 2016—31 January 2017
Museo Civico, Italy

The civic museum in the medieval town of San Gimignano in Tuscany (Italy) hosts an exhibition of Pakistani artist Imran Qureshi. In the 14th century tower Torre Grossa, the artist presents Miniature paintings especially created for the occasion, which recall the style of the Mughal courts (16th to 19th century). While climbing the stairs, the viewer will discover an installation made of printed sheets of paper, displayed in the recessed walls of the tower. High up, a site-specific intervention made of floral ornaments cover the rooftop like vines, making petals and leaves emerge from what seems to be a scene of massacre.
