HATJE CANTZ

Carol Rama: Appassionata

Essays by Silvia Eiblmayr, Brigitte Reinhardt, Lea Vergine, and Edoardo Sanguineti.

Appassionata offers a compelling cross-section of Carol Rama's lifetime of work. Early on, she combined the surreal and the erotic in her watercolors and drawings. Delicately rendered, they show fragmented, injured female bodies, male figures charged with sexual symbolism, as well as objects like artificial limbs, shoes and animals. Born in 1918 in Turin, Rama took up her radical and taboo-breaking position as early as 1936, anticipating positions on the body and sexuality that became prevalent only in the 1960s and 1970s. During the 1950s, Rama addressed abstraction, increasingly incorporating body-related materials like animal claws, doll's eyes or bicycle inner tubes. In the early 1980s, she returned to her earlier erotic subjects, to which she remains devoted. Into them she now also includes scenes of everyday life and mythological figures, often depicted ironically. Apart from a wonderful overview of Rama's work, this publication also sheds light on her lifelong artistic involvement with the poet Edoardo Sanguineti.
