Heart Project

Heart Project is the solo exhibition by Rosita D’Agrosa (Polla, Salerno, 1989) that inaugurates a new season at the LdM Gallery.  The exhibition, which takes its name from the homonymous series of works on display, offers the opportunity to open a door into the private world of this young artist who has transformed ordinary life, made up of objects, events, thoughts and emotions, into the portrait of a free and profound intimacy.

The works trace the path of a loving and loved heart, throbbing and out of balance as it is always reaching out and in dialogue. Slowly, in fact, “closed gardens” come to life before our eyes and resemble secret rooms of the soul, where each work is the result of a sum of notes on private conversations between the artist and someone else, full of annotations about her own ability to feel and to offer oneself.

– Erica Romano


Rosita D’Agrosa (1989) graduated with a focus in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts of Florence, whereupon completing her artistic training, she also won a scholarship at the Il Bisonte Foundation in print and graphic art. During the academic years, she was a guest of several artistic residences in Spain, specifically in Erill la Vall, Lleida, and Arenys de Munt. Her artistic research is in continuous experimentation by combining painting, graphics, and textile art. Techniques from her own family history, based on a culture of textile practices, are also used as a medium and language in her works to restore poetry to the textile industry. D’Agrosa’s poetry highlights a personal and intimate feminine dimension, the result of a reasoned study of the (female) body and an analysis of the change to which the human being is subjected. She lives and works in Florence.
