Halfway down, aluminium pipes, stones. Unbearable dissertation on a broken line, Galerie Mario Iannelli, Berlin, 2011

The work, in direct dialogue with the main pillar of the expository space, is  composed of aluminum tubes  and marbles. The central wall of the gallery appears as if pierced by tubular elements which, reaching into the large windows of the adjacent surroundings, end up in an interplay of pressure between rock and glass.

Hanging on the ceiling Untitled, an iron circle, fragment of a preceding work to which a set of tiny speakers has been attached, whose sonic element is the result of a collaboration with Deviation, a Swiss performer collective. An unfinished work, constantly on its course, the line of a circle that is never enclosed but interrupted, the difference between an eternal inevitable temporality and the idea of a coherent, enclosed universe.

The photographic image then returns in Corviale (2003- 2011), projections of two superimposed slides, both representing particular views of the gigantic building erected across Rome’s Via Portuense. A construction planned in 1972 and inspired by the residential solution of the first rationalism, it presents clear allusions to the theories of Unités d’Habitation by Le Corbusier. A work of art, it is said, today a representation of a missing or at least unrealized utopia, debased by a wrong implementation of the prevailing on-site idea at the moment of execution and by the degradation due to its total abandonment.
