With the exhibition In Situ: Traces of Morandi, curated by Giusi Vecchi, the American artist Catherine Wagner imagined new still lives with the objects that Giorgio Morandi used to depict in his paintings, using them to create, both formally and conceptually, new compositions through repetition and the ephemeral nature of shadows. Three series on display: Shadows, in which only the projected shadows of the compositions were photographed creating de-materialized images, Wrapped Objects, in which the objects were wrapped by the artist in foil to reimagine them in an abstracted context, and finally Grizzana Studio, where Catherine Wagner, in addition to her work with the objects placed in the atelier of the Apennine town, also photographed the landscape, another pivotal issue of Morandi. All the series are characterized by saturated color-fields that the artist “extrapolated” from Morandi's still lives: hues of cobalt blue, amber, vermilion, burnt orange and chartreuse green.

The catalogue includes an interview to the artist edited by Giusi Vecchi, and a critical text by Peter Benson Miller, Andrew Heiskell Arts Director at the American Academy of Rome.
