Gustavo Aceves “Lapidarium” ____________ Pietrasanta Sculpture, 2014


Today the besieging army at the city gates is apparently gone, the enemy seems to have left a giant totem: a horse… is it perchance a gift? … wait! That’s another epic,

The first of two monumental bronze horses that will complete Gustavo Aceves’ “Lapidarium” exhibition will be unveiled in the Piazza tomorrow, in Pietrasanta.

The Mexican sculptor’s horses are still, ominous, and bear mute witnesses “to the suffering and the atrocities endured by the populations of the world.” The work will be installed Friday in the early hours of the morning, while the Unveiling will take place at 8:30pm. Doing the unveiling will be the sculptor’s friends, the multiple-Oscar-winner, Director Alfonzo Cuarón, along with Jose Botaya, another noted Mexican Director in town.

The bronze sculpture was produced by the Fonderia Mariani, in Pietrasanta.

The opening ceremony will be preceded by a special guided tour – the artist will welcome 40 v.i.p. guests, from all of Europe; among the guests: collectors, gallerists, and the Mexican Ambassador. Pietrasanta’s Mayor, Domenico Lombardi will cheer-on the ceremony. SKY Arte and the Notimex Press Agency will be on hand to record the inauguration and the dialog between Cuarón and Aceves.
