In the summer of 2018, the first Russian exhibition of Marinus Boezem’s work took place in, around and even on top of the Gorky Park Museum in the centre of Moscow. Dell’Uomo, Italian for ‘about man’, told a story about how people relate to their environment. The title of the exhibition refers to Boezem’s entire body of work since most of his research focuses on mankind and how people think in terms of opposites, how they categorise, schematise, label, measure and map things.
