SPACES NON SPACES is a project conceived by Benedetta Carpi De Resmini for Ex Elettrofonica interpreting the gallery as a non-space, following the concept of Marc Augé; as a knot or web of a world without borders, a place to lose ourselves and simultaneously find ourselves. In a city like Rome, characterized by history and time, non-spaces reveal passages in which space, no longer divided by frontiers, opens up to new shared experiences. The non-space thus becomes a positive element to set against the idea of belonging connected with our roots, one in which the void left by the new global society creates not only alienated spaces but sites in which we can recognize ourselves and create new phases of planning and evolution.
The first exhibition is dedicated to Alis/Filliol, the alias of Davide Gennarino and Andrea Respino, a duo who came together in Turin in 2007. Their artistic inquiry revolves around sculpture in the most traditional sense of a technique which offers unexpected and often unknown potentialities, and which leads to clashes in the process of its making that imply the need to involve both of the conflicting elements in the object’s realization.
