Zero Gravity: Art, Technology and New Spaces of Identity

Palazzo Delle Esposizioni
Via Nazionale 194
June 27–September 24, 2001

Curators Bartolomeo Pietromarchi and Maria Grazia Tolomeo Speranza premise their exhibition on the idea that new technologies have created a “contemporary condition that resembles the spatial-temporal suspensions produced by the absence of gravity.” Not an entirely original notion perhaps, but many of the dozen-plus international artists invited to prove the point have rarely shown in Italy (Henrik Håkansson, Aernout Mik, Ross Sinclair). Others invited to present one work apiece are Jane and Louise Wilson, showing photographs from their “Star City” project, and Serbian artist Tanja Ostojic.
