2016 site-specific intervention

spray paint on mdf 40cm x 80m ca

Work realized for “Der Blitz 2016 – Arcipelago”, organized in collaboration by MART, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto, and MAG, Museo Alto Garda in Riva del Garda, in the Italian province of Trento. The show took place in the castle of Riva del Garda, where MAG is situated.

Since MAG itself is a civic museum, focused mainly on archeology and local history, its audience is not necessarily familiar with contemporary art. The artists invited were, then, solicited to adopt an experiential and environmental approach, considering the unused and in-between spaces in the museum rather than bringing the audience to a frontal, one-to-one fruition.

My intervention consisted in a self-supporting geometric pattern, spray painted on mdf, unfolding throughout all of the perimeter of the castle’s internal balcony, conceived as a temporary, removable wallpainting.
