Roberto Cuoghi: da iḍā e piṅgalā a iḍā e iḍā o piṅgalā e piṅgalā

Roberto Cuoghi’s exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum examines integral themes within his practice, including the history of metamorphosis, the challenges of representation, and the fluidity and hybridity inherent in identity. The title of the exhibition, da iḍā e piṅgalā a iḍā e iḍā o piṅgalā e piṅgalā—a collaboration between the Aspen Art Museum and Le Consortium in Dijon, France—alludes to Cuoghi’s exploration of Assyrian language and rituals, revealing the artist’s interest in how narrative and the act of translation can effect our understanding of history and reality.
