AlbumArte and Latitudo Art Projects present


Guendalina Salini

curated by Benedetta Carpi De Resmini

May 18th – 24th June, 2022 | AlbumArte, Roma

The project was born during a residency realized by the artist, within the European platform Magic Carpets, during which Guendalina started a long research in the western suburbs of the city, in Corviale – for more details click here.

From this residency, Guendalina decided to continue developing her thinking, to continue working on what she had already started. Guendalina has listened to this place trying to go beyond the stereotyped image of the modern suburbs, but returning to a circular and mutual conception of time and space. All the works in the exhibition highlight a double contrasting aspect that refers to both the fragility and the strength of a place like Corviale. Agile and surprising, infesting and mixing, untamed and nomadic, primitive and wild are some of the adjectives that the artist associates to the large drawings made in pen during the residency.

The exhibition is built around the voices of some of the inhabitants who have composed the track of the sound walk that physically goes through different points of the building. The audio, realise in collaboration with the sound designer Marco Stefanelli, which can be listened to in the rooms and easily downloaded through a QRcode or by clicking play here below, becomes the fil rouge that runs under track along the exhibition route.

In addition, in the exhibition it’s possible to see an evocative video of the immanence and transcendence of the place will be presented, with original music by Federico Pascucci and performances by Giulia Anita Bari, Carla González, Ambra Chiara Michelangeli, Federico Pascucci, Marco Zenini.

Guendalina through sound installations, videos and drawings, leads us to question ourselves about our political, cultural and moral reality, exploring its limits.
