Gerardo Di Fiore
Gli angeli ribelli (“The Rebel Angels”)
A great bas-relief with the figures of angels but in vaguely lascivious, disturbing, sexy poses. The angels, chaste and sexless - tells the artist - were sent to Sodom and Gomorrah to observe and punish the sexual excesses of the two cities. Having discovered the pleasures of sex and the fulfillment of love, the angels decided not to return to their asexual paradise, preferring to enjoy the pleasures of the flesh. A paradoxical and irreverent parable that confirms Di Fiore’s ironic and New Dada vein.
