20 July-9 Oct 2011. An installation by Chiara Castri inspired by an Assyrian relief of the seventh century BC from the Palace of Ashurbanipal at Nineveh. The spirit of the time and place, that evokes memories of fairy tale, is here represented by the deportation of a group of Babylonian captives in a landscape punctuated by palm trees. At the centre of the sculpture is the image of a woman with a child, while her partner looks back in a gesture intended to convey poignant regret for the lost land.
