Roman by birth, Alba Gonzales has Sicilian, Greek, Spanish and French roots and a Mediterranean cosmopolitanism that in some ways explains the mythical and mythological legacy that energises her work, influenced by a sensual cult of form and the human body understood as a temple of the soul, in both its positive and negative aspects, destined to permanently coexist. Gonzales’ roots, bound as they are to ‘Mare nostrum’ (the ancient name for the Mediterranean), mean that the display of her works in Palermo, the ‘hybrid’ city par excellence, cannot help but multiply their epic and evocative echoes, further enriched by the site chosen for the exhibition documented in this volume, the Fondazione Whitaker - Villa Malfitano.
