June 16 - September 30, 2022, Geneva Biennale: Sculpture Garden, Geneva, Switzerland

Press Release

Brazilian artist Erika Verzutti is internationally renowned for her work on the living. Working with various materials, such as papier maché, concrete, bronze and the casting of natural elements and larger, invented fruits she molds in clay, the artist explores the role of natural ready-mades in sculpture. Verzutti’s universe is akin to bestiary and tropical flora in which all sorts of organic forms intermingle: animals, fruit, totem… most of them imbued with an erotic charge. For Sculpture Garden she presents one of her inverted Venuses, as a homage to sensuality and fertility, in the form of a piece of many-breasted tropical fruit.
