Puzzling Renaissance



PUZZLING RENAISSANCE & BAROQUE | Puzzling Classics Project
Puzzling is the name of a digital art project started in 2015 by Andrea Morucchio. In that year, the Venetian artist on the occasion the 56th Venice Biennale had presented as part of the MUVE Contemporaneo exhibition project the multimedia installation The Rape of Venice at Palazzo Mocenigo Museum in Venice.

One of the most significant elements of the installation consisted of thousands of randomly recombined photographic tiles that deconstructed the mosaic floor of St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice; more than five thousand different photographic tiles of geometric, phytomorphic and zoomorphic motifs were printed on a walkable vinyl surface that was glued to the floor of the exhibition space.

With the Puzzling Classics project, these tiles are rearranged and repositioned in the form of a mosaic to recreate/reinterpret the paintings of past masters that Morucchio particularly loved.

The main subjects of the reinterpretation process of the Puzzling project are a selection of paintings by great masters, mainly Italian Renaissance and Baroque painters, who through portraiture represent historical, religious or mythological figures.
