Wrinkles may be a bit of a touchy subject for most people, but not for Hungarian model-turned-artist Andi Kacziba, who paints them gold and is showing them for the world to see in Turin, Italy.
On 3 July, Kacziba has opened her “Turning (G)old” exhibition at the Raffaella De Chirico Gallery, right on the banks of the Po river. The highlight of the exhibition is a series of Polaroid pictures of Kacziba’s face, her wrinkles filled in with a mixture of gold and vinyl glue to line them in the most spectacular way. “She knows the world of the personal image very well and knows how to use her face,” says the exhibition’s curator Angela Madesani. Beauty and the apparent obsession with its loss are the true centre of this installation, which echoes the artist’s background in the modeling industry. “It’s natural for her art to focus on these themes,” continues Madesani.
