As Master of the new classics, Marco Battaglini has taken the traditional Venus and reworked the proportions of the sculpture in both marble and resin to reflect today’s contemporary aesthetic. In this work, Kylie Jenner’s body is the template for the voluptuous figure seen in VENUS VICTRIX HODIE.
-Sway Gaytan (curator)
This is a great new project with Kylie Jenner: I have created The Contemporary Venus “VENUS VICTRIX HODIE”. In accordance with the same artistic theme that I have been developing, I wanted to show the contrast of aesthetic ideals, how the concept of beauty has changed and shaped society. As I normally do through the contrast between classical aesthetics and the contemporary noise of graffiti, in this sculptural project I wanted to create the impact using the aesthetics and voluptuousness of Kylie’s body that obviously contrasts with the classical aesthetics of all the Venus of the past. For that reason the Masterpiece will be presented in the Antonio Canova Museum surrounded by the most famous classical works in the History of Art.
