Carolrama Coralarma Claromara Arolcarma Coralroma Ormalacra Carmarola is the first exhibition dedicated to Carol Rama’s research of the 1960s and ‘70s. The title of the exhibition is a 1974 composition by Man Ray, printed in the catalogue of a show organized by gallerist Luciano Anselmino and framed by Rama for her home and studio in Turin. Opening on March 17 at 4 Passage SainteAvoye, this presentation follows the 2015 solo show La passion selon Carol Rama curated by Anne Dressen at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Narrowing the focus of that last momentous survey, LGDR’s exhibition unwraps two important decades of the artist’s research. On view through May 7, 2022, Carolrama Coralarma Claromara Arolcarma Coralroma Ormalacra Carmarola includes historic work never previously exhibited as well as material on loan from the artist’s extraordinary home and studio in Turin, including samples of elements used in the works on view and personal records illuminating her artistic and social milieu. The exhibition is divided into four sections. It opens with a group of bricolages made in the 1960s. For these works, Rama covered canvases, boards, and sheets of paper with paint. She then embedded objects in them ranging from syringes, wire, and metal shavings to doll eyes and animal claws. The bricolages emerged from her interest in Surrealism, and also reveal the importance that Turin played in her approach to materials, as many of the items that she appropriated came from nearby factories.
