The installation is accessible from 06:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., in the area between Stradone Sant’Agostino and vico Amandorla (during the days May 11 – 14th 2017)
The installation arises from the need of inspecting the experience of captivity in a perceptive sense, triggering a reflection on the idea of the reclusion, invariable constant of all the conflicts, which strikes up with the daily sphere and to the way today we perceive the world.
Installed in the urban space of the historic down-town of Genova (luxuriant of stones and buildings, the memory of the tragic events related to the World Wars is almost silent), the screens show the image of the numerous prisoners who from the inside try to free themselves.
The casual bump into the artworks induces to reflect on the paradox of the encounter-crash among the freedom of the passer-by ad the desperate condition of the prisoner, out of any time and place, awakening a precious – although uncomfortable – collective historical memory.
In collaboration with the Municipality of Genova and Riprendiamoci Genova CollectiveVernissage: May, Thursday 11th, 06:00 p.m., at Feellove (Stradone Sant’Agostino 17, 16123, Genova, Italy)
