“Apologia” – the last project for Database Carrara 2013 – is an exhibition of the works of Greta Alfaro, Juan Pablo Marcìas and Fabrizio Prevedello; the exhibition is currently on view at the Museo del Marmo in Carrara. It features artwork created specifically for Database Carrara, and is curated by Federica Forti, for Ars Gratia Artis, in conjunction with the Comune di Carrara.
Greta Alfaro, Spanish artist, imagines a “Cult of Marble” – an actual sect of devotees who worship the stone as sacred element, and supreme God. Her works metaphorically lay out a destruction of art, and a ritual suicide of the artist … through marble.

Juan Pablo Marcìas, Mexican artist, develops his theme of “Tiempo Muerto” (Dead Time) a project which he started in 2009, at the Anarchist Library of Mexico City. His piece features a video dedicated to man’s relationship with the environment.

Fabrizio Prevedello, Italian artist, decided to place his works near the various “rifugi” (shelters) in the Apuan Alps, on Mt Corchia and at the Cervaiola Quarry.
