Francesco Vezzoli: GreedFrancesco Vezzoli: Greed

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Cristiana Perrella. Text by Cristiana Perrella, Nicholas Cullinhan, Neville Wakefield, Bruce Hainley.

Borrowing the strategy of a commercial perfume launch, Francesco Vezzoli (born 1971) created a signature perfume called “Greed” and commissioned Roman Polanski to direct a 60-second commercial starring Natalie Portman and Michelle Williams. A series of needlework portraits of women in art history--Tamara de Lempicka, Eva Hesse, Leonor Fini--presented them as endorsers of the perfume.

Francesco Vezzoli: Right You Are (If You Think You Are)Francesco Vezzoli: Right You Are (If You Think You Are)

Published by Charta/ Gagosian Gallery.
Text by Herbert Muschamp, RoseLee Goldberg, Francesco Vezzoli, Nancy Spector, Michael Schulman.

Throughout his career, Francesco Vezzoli has focused on people’s fascination with celebrity. At the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on October 27, 2007, he restaged Right You Are (If You Think You Are), the renowned play by Italian Nobel Laureate Luigi Pirandello that examines the fundamental ambiguity of truth. Vezzoli assembled an extraordinary cast of top-billed actors, implicating his audience in an investigation of rumor and celebrity mongering as substitutes for a deeper understanding of the individual. Pirandello, like Vezzoli in his own art, points to these empty distractions as a means of drawing attention to existential and humanist concerns. Vezzoli’s visionary approach to Pirandello’s jewel of a work playfully exposes the relativity of truth, the necessity of illusion, and the instability of the human persona. Co-produced by the Gagosian Gallery of New York, the staging is fully documented in this book in which you can literally be reflected as in a mirror, thanks to the inside of the cover.

Francesco VezzoliFrancesco Vezzoli

Published by Fondazione Prada.
Edited by Germano Celant. Essays by Patrizio Bertelli.

Francesco Vezzoli's Trilogia della Morte (Trilogy of Death) explores video and embroidery, an unconventional combination unified by both passion and effectiveness. The 120 Seats of Sodom, inspired by the Italian director and poet Pier Paolo Pasolini's The 120 Days of Sodom, aligns 120 black Charles Rennie Mackintosh chairs with embroidered seats before a tapestry showing erotic scenes from other Pasolini films. Non-Love Meetings, conceived as a reinvention of Pasolini's documentary Love Meetings, in which the director traveled through Italy interviewing people about love and sex, is set in a television studio and evokes Blind Date as much as its titular reference. Like Love Meetings, it seeks to create a psychological territory in which the public speaks openly about sex and love; like reality TV, it stars a showgirl, as well as actresses from the film world, MTV and soap operas, all of whom are courted by unlikely suitors. A fetching and thought-provoking mix of both formal and colloquial entertainment.

The Needleworks Of Francesco VezzoliThe Needleworks Of Francesco Vezzoli

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Artwork by Francesco Vezzoli. Edited by Gianfranco Maraniello, Dan Cameron, Barbara Steiner, Jan Winkelmann.

Next to his film and video works, the needleworks of Milan-based artist Francesco Vezzoli constitute a second important artistic output, in which the artist deals with the stars and divas of film, advertising, fashion, and TV. Through artfully, obsessively embroidered portraits, Vezzoli explores both the glamour that surrounds celebrities and the loneliness and transigence of their fame.
