The world of Laurina Paperina is a continuous succession of characters from cartoons, comics, the starsystem of cinema and art, video games and TV series. The artist’s goal is clear and irreverent: to absorb and filter all these motivation through his very personal vision and return them to the widest possible audience as art (of any form of art: paintings, drawings, sculptures, videos and installations). What if this world turns upside down for once? What if the artist, who has already proved that she can predict the future, declares that the day of the Last Judgment has come?

“Doomsday”, the new solo exhibition by Laurina Paperina, will open on 6 October 2016 at 6.30 pm at the Studio d’Arte Raffaelli in Trento with a general subversion of all the “rules” dictated up to now by the artist. Inspired – in her own way – by the works of those who, before her, tried their hand at the representation of the complex system of the Apocalypse (from Flemish painters to Neil Marshall), Paperina reinvents Hell and Heaven, placing ranks of Batman and Robin , Micky Mouse, Lupo Alberto, the Simpson, Freddy Kruger, Uomo Tigre, Spiderman, and a large procession of superheroes and antiheroes waiting to be ferried to one side or the other of the gallery, which will turn into a real afterlife in Papaerin style, between large canvases, works on paper, videos, and the latest version of the installation “The Pape Prophecies”. Here each visitor will be able to obtain a unique and original prophecy specially designed by the artist.

The opening exibition will be accompanied by the “Cantori da Verméi” choir and a catalog with text by Ivan Quaroni will be published for the exhibition.

“Doomsday” will be open until 10 December 2016.  

Laurina Paperina was born in Rovereto (TN) in 1980. She defines herself as “a duck with a human head”. She paints, draws, creates installations, video animations and sometimes she take pictures. She has exhibited her works in art galleries, public spaces and museums in Italy and abroad. She currently lives and works in “Duckland”, a remote village in the Universe.
