Project Room #9
Galerie des glaces
The exhibition is the third appointment with the Project Room cycle of the Foundation which makes its space and knowledge available to youngcurators and artists, with the aim of keeping the public up-to-date on the latest trends in contemporary sculpture.
The 2018 cycle, curated by Flavio Arensi, is titled Proust’s Room: an exhibition in three acts, to reflect on the role of sculpture in this historical moment, a pretext to watch society and man.
The artist recreates a “party hall” typical of the ancient royal palaces, intervening on the perimeter of the empty room, stripping the walls of all the decorative necessities and leaving only the mirrors to interact with the visitor. The environment will resonate with nineteenth-century music reworked by Francesco Fugazza, and the image reflected in the mirrors will be the only way in which the visitor can concretely perceive himself in time and space.
