"In the last century, the Museo Civico Diocesano di S. Maria dei Servi has been transformed from church to town storage to museum. Alex Israel’s installation draws inspiration from traditional characterizations that define all of these incarnations: spiritual, archival and museological.
Continuing with Property, an ongoing body of work, Israel has rented his newest prop sculptures from the legendary Italian film studio Cinecittà. He selected an array of replica Styrofoam and fiberglass antiquities and objects, iconic and anonymous, drawn from an amalgam of cultures, eras, and narratives, and composed them in dialogue with each other and with the unique venue.”
