Here is a presentation made by Peggy Sue Amison (curator):Marco Vernaschi’s Placebo is a journey of direct experience, a therapeutic and illusory investigation in the role of sexual energy at the core of human existence. Vernaschi expresses the solitude and silence of life, and capture physical moments in a destabilizing, dreamlike series of visual poems.
The images are cast in an aura of violence revealed as a basic component of human nature, of nature itself, the essence of civilization’s foundation. Placebo was exhibited in 2011 at 54th Venice Biennale, and will be published this month as a book.
