Capo d’Arte, in its second year of partnership with the prestigious French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici has hosted French artists Eva Jospin and Simon Rouby, fellows at the Villa Medici for 2016-17.

The installation of Eva Jospin reimagines an abandoned room in the old town of Gagliano. Eva has worked with olive trees and oaks, two plants which are threatened by bacteria that are likely to drastically change the local landscape. The work, aesthetically evocative and light, has a very strong and present message.
Throughout his residency in Gagliano, Simon Rouby investigated the ideas of migration and integration in their broader sense. The result is an experimental documentary, together with an exceptional projection that, for two days only, will give life to his Sleeping Giants in the local fjord named Ciolo.
