Press Release 

Barbara Fragogna | Exoplanets / Portrait of a Pupil
Gallery70 is delighted to present an Online Exclusive solo show of the Italian artist Barbara Fragogna. 
With a special focus on Cosmology, the artist brings  a series of works entitled “Exoplanets - Portraits of a  Pupil”. A rational-surreal representation of possible worlds to be discovered outside the solar system which, paradoxically, however, are composed of symbolic and organic elements of the human body such as eyes or skulls/skeletons as if to say (oversimplifying the much richer concept) that the solution to many of the social environmental and political issues are both within reach as extensions of our will (the Socratic ‘know yourself’) and slippery and slimy because of the entirely pragmatic difficulty of changing our own habits (i.e. How the World Really Works by Vaclav Smil).

About the artist 
Barbara Fragogna, born in Venice 1975, is a multidisciplinary artist, art director and publisher.
 "My artistic research investigates the themes of productive failure such as irony, anxiety, the sense of ridicule, nausea, individualism, non-democratic confrontation, obsession, patriarchy, the defeat of memory, the re-dimension of the ego, the absurd and the paradox through the artistic and curatorial practice as a useless but necessary action."
She has exhibited in galleries and institutions in Italy and abroad, she worked as art director of KH Tacheles from 2008 to 2012, in 2013 she founded the Independent publishing house Edizioni Inaudite. From 2015 to 2019 she has been the director of  the Fusion Art Gallery / Inaudita project in Turin. In 2020 she moved part of her projects to Inauditaland, Padova.
Currently based in Padua Italy.
