The Méridien Beach Plaza is hosting the world premiere of Gianni Ottaviani’s latest works ‘Tutti in fila’, presented by ArtSGK.
Gianni Ottaviani was born in Popoli, Abruzzo, Italy. His artistic career has been shaped by the world’s most famous contemporary artists, which Ottaviani says he knows personally and who have taught him a lot both artistically and personally.
A recognised portraitist, his art now tells a story of how society isolates itself more and more from reality as it neglects interpersonal relationships.
Taking the form of collage, his paintings utilise human figures like puppets, where decomposition and recomposition form the main theme of ‘Tutti in fila’, or ‘All in a row’, together with his use of slogans.
Ottaviani’s works attempt to bear witness to the most frantic historical moments of all time.
“There is a lot of talk about Ottaviani right now, but that is nothing compared to what we will say about him in the future,” says Sandrine Knoell-Garbagnati, founder of ArtSGK.

The Monaco Tunisia Association will present ISSUE, Eugénie Andrin's new dance performance, on December 1 at Théâtre des Variétés. The performance will start at 6:30 pm.
The choreography was born from a meeting with the journalist Shiran Ben Abderrazak, author of the Diary of a Defeat, which is at the heart of the production and represents a voice of the Tunisian people who have risen up in revolt. It's a message that encourages us to fight, to not be afraid.
The movements were enriched during a Master Class for Tunisian professional dancers at Villa Dar Eyquem in Hammamet, a town in southeast Tunisia known for its beaches. The production, with visual artist Roxane Ducruet, follows the aftermath of the Arab Spring as a reflection in flesh and bone on the fragility of revolutionary ideals and the price of freedom.
A game between the dancers and a set of suspended doors questions these new thresholds, these tests, and shows a way in a labyrinth full of obstacles. In turn, these doors grow open to our fears, the abyss, the illusion, but also the dream, the hopes, the truth.
The eventual outcome of the Tunisian revolt is uncertain, but the determination of the Tunisian people does not weaken, the association says.
The evening includes an overview of the show's creation before the performance and a post-show Q&A with the choreographer. Tickets: €25.
