"Senza titolo, invisibile, le stelle si avvicinano di una spanna in più, oltremare appare verso Sud-Est, e la luce focalizza..." As is often the case with Giovanni Anselmo’s work, the long title is like a formula, almost a short story, which describes installations that could be considered landscapes to observe while “looking out of the window of our imagination”.
His work is like a paradigm that is constantly being recreated and which orients itself differently every time it encounters a new space and dimension: in this case the Carlo Scarpa space at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice. Anselmo has envisaged a project for the Carlo Scarpa space inspired by the precision and essential rigour that the place itself suggested to him.
For this exhibition the route he has created unwinds through four elements-works: one work for each space, to give direction and create a tension towards the exterior. It is a route of trajectories and directions, weights and energies which represent five moments in which a meaning is implied: the visitors become participants.
It is a work in progress because it is lived and lives through the viewer. The viewer also creates a new trajectory while walking through the exhibition.
Curated by Chiara Bertola, the exhibition will be in the Area Scarpa of the Fondazione Querini Stampalia from 10 May to 24 September 2017, during the 57th Venice Biennale.
From Tuesday to Sunday, 10 am - 6 pm
Closed on Monday
