Installazione Museion, Museo d’arte moderna e contemporanea Bolzano, Italia 2006


While walking though Museion’s halls, the visitor has the alienating experience of encountering two absolutely identical spaces, each the duplication of the other, and together a faithful mirror of a cultural reality. The deja-vu experience of moving in two successive moments into two perfectly identical spaces amounts to a telling metaphor of the italian/german cultural space of South Tyrol: everything is double, from the chandelier, to the table, the chairs and the wall paper. This act of de- constructed and re-constructed meaning is completed by the publication of a book with a half-Italian, half- German cover: its content consists entirely of images and drawings of these two doubled spaces.
