exhibition design, Gioia del Colle, Italy, 2018
The renovation for the curatorial project Antilia Galley took place in a so-called sottano located at the edge of the historic centre of Gioia del Colle, in Via Filippo Pugliese. The exhibition space is intended to be a field that is deserted and contaminated by stories of conquests and legends.
The island is the most remote place where a man or a woman can surround himself or herself with nature. Sometimes hospitable, other times impervious. Origin of elusive dreams, of deeper and spiritual thoughts, the island is transformed into a dwelling place of life, death, and soul. Enchanting with sacred and profane tales, hosting new forms and functions of imaginary cities, orienting and disorienting the observer, Antilia tells about herself and reality.
