Gianna Scoino: Rebels at Immaginaria Arti Visive Gallery, Florence, January 12 – February 3, 2016

“The intense and visionary expression of Joan of Arc, taken from Carl Theodor Dreyer’s masterpiece (La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc, 1928), is the protagonist of Rebels, the cycle of works that Gianna Scoino presents today at the Immaginaria Gallery. The artist has worked for years on feminine themes, understood as a complex universe, connected to creation through life, and thus in perennial conflict with the logic of death that looms over it from all sides.” — Susanna Ragionieri
