“Prehistoric Wave” by Andrea Benetti curated by Luciana Apicella

Set up in the space of ArTheoria, Milan, Andrea Benetti‘s “Prehistoric Wave” exhibition features works made with pigments, which were used 40,000 years ago by a prehistoric artist, to paint five stones, found in the archaeological excavation of the Fumane cave. The pigments were provided and certified by the University of Ferrara, which directed and carried out the archaeological excavations. With this exhibition, Andrea Benetti creates an imaginary bridge between the genesis of art and its contemporaneity. Thus was born the “Prehistoric Wave” project, created in collaboration with the Departments of Arts of the University of Bologna and Biology and Evolution of the University of Ferrara. With this collection, Benetti highlights the similarity of today’s way of communicating, based on iconography and extreme simplification of signs, with part of the symbolism proper to Cave painting.
