CLONE is an international project about the controversial theme of cloning
that will take place in Rome starting 18th June 2004. Four artists - Luca Curci, Richard Journo, Fabiana Roscioli and Jan Simon -
present 16 identical works in four galleries. Each artist shows his/her original work and 3 works based on the re-elaboration of the other artists work. The 16 works are then ‘cloned’ to be shown in 4 galleries.
The artists duplicating an entire exhibition, put in question the
serialising process in the contemporary art. By doing so they reflect on one
hand on the uniformity to which consumer goods are subjected in order to be
distributed on a global market and on the other the impact that the global
consumerism has on human beings, reducing them to flattened and homogeneous
personalities. In this perspective the Clone project aims at stimulating a
debate between art and science, the private sphere and the public control.
