Julia Muggenburg is pleased to announce the group exhibition ‘Bodikon’. It’s token title is a re-appropriated gairaigo or wasei-eigo term derived from the English body conscious, descriptive of a late 1980s fashion phenomena.


A continuous thread running through ‘Bodikon’ is ‘Lo Zodiaco’ – a tableau vivant showing the 12 signs of the zodiac in the ‘flesh’ presented through humans, animals and dead fish– by Gino De Dominicis (Ancona, 1947 – Rome, 1998) at Galleria L’Attico, Rome in 1970.  De Dominicis questioned the extremes within arte-povera, its romanticism, the sophisticated irony and the movements response to the post-war urbanism.

The notion that context and constellation are projecting something mundane and unremarkable to an elevated form is not only a component of this mise-en-scene; an artist’s vernacular transforms and transcends limits perceived. 

The poster, printed from an image by the official photographer is ‘Lo Zodiaco’ sole testimony. Narcissism, physicality and elegance are on parade.

‘Bodikon’ will be commemorated by a posthumous poster/manifesto made by participating artists Michela de Mattei and Diego Miguel Mirabella as an edition for Belmacz.
