The exhibition takes its lead from the baroque space of the church of San Paolo Converso. It speaks therefore of Baroque and its evolution as well as of a new contemporary idea of Baroque and a concept of modern conversion/transformation as imagined by Pier Paolo Pasolini in his never realized movie on the conversion of Saint Paul.
Conversion as change in forms, ideologies and behaviors of society and the body.
Gianni Pettena’s reaction to the baroque environment are the proportions of ‘sezione aurea’.
