What if the iconic image of the unicorn was only derived from the falsely identified depiction of an ox from the Bronze Age? In Gentle Unicorn, a work about the political body and its social role, Chiara Bersani dedicates her flesh, muscles and bones to the image and unfathomable being of the unicorn, to right the wrong that has been done to it and to reframe its role in history.
