The exhibition Vanity Case takes a fresh look at a recurring motif in art history since the seventeenth century: the Vanities. In a various and dense installation, we will show works reinterpreting the Still Life and others depicting the main symbols of vanities: skulls and clocks. The show hosts more "abstract" readings, and works less directly inspired by the human condition than by the insignificance of social organisations and the illusory nature of the progress, the modernity and the glory.
