about

Italian multimedia artist Roberto Cuoghi (born 1973) works in painting, sculpture, digital animation, drawing and sound. Perhaps best known for his decision to alter his appearance at age 24 to become a man in his sixties, Cuoghi has since created many works exploring issues of transformation and identity.
Examining integral themes within the artist's practice, including the history of metamorphosis, the challenges of representation and the fluidity and hybridity inherent in identity, this publication features texts in multiple languages by both the artist and curator Yorgos Tzirtzilakis. The exhibition and book title allude to Cuoghi's exploration of Assyrian language and rituals--clearly visible in his striking pieces--revealing the artist's interest in how narrative and the act of translation can affect our understanding of history and reality.
