Slide 1:

Igor Mitoraj

Slide 2:

Igor Mitoraj (born 1944) - Polish sculptor who used to live in Italy. He draws inspiration from ancient Greek sculpture. A characteristic motif in his work is human frailty; the bandaged body, hollowed out figures. Well-known works by Mitoraj include 'The head', 'Venus' and 'Eros'. In 2006, Igor Mitoraj created the new bronze doors and a statue of John the Baptist for the basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli in Rome. His monumental works are found in squares and courtyards, from Paris to Tokyo, in Pietrasanta, Bologna, Rome, Cracow and Warsaw. The monumental works by this artist of Polish origin born in Germany recover the spirit from Greece, from Rome, from the great sculpture masters of the Renaissance and are inspired by history and mythology subjects from a contemporary perspective.

Slide 14:

Igor Mitoraj has recovered the spirit of Greek and Roman art of the great masters of Renaissance sculpture. His monumental works are inspired by the themes in history and mythology, and he reinterprets them from a contemporary perspective. Enigmatic images, of gods and heroes take the streets and plazas and present their interrogation to the citizens. Although it deals with recent creations, they take the appearance of archaeological pieces and remind us of the persistence, under today’s modernity, of the great themes which worry men: reason and spirituality, violence or beauty?

Rome Church Our Lady of the Angels, built on the ruins of the Diocletian Baths. The construction of  the church was commissioned to Michelangelo. You can note the bronze doors, created by Igor Mitoraj.

Slide 52:

In 2006 Igor Mitoraj created the new bronze doors and a statue of John the Baptist for the basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli in Rome. Mitoraj's sculptural style is rooted in the classical tradition with its focus on the well modeled torso. However, Mitoraj introduces a post-modern twist with ostentatiously truncated limbs, emphasizing the damage sustained by most genuine classical sculptures.
