The large-scale installation especially conceived for the Rome gallery combines the consistency of objects’ materiality along with their virtual effect expressed by the constrains they represent. By ‘cutting’ the reality into parts, the frames constitute the limits within any single experience can be immersed and defined. The exhibition revolves around the duplicity of a common object, metaphorically associated with the latest screens technologies which extract and confine, capture and immortalize everything that is part of reality. As in the exhibited works at the neapolitan space, the artist suggests with this installation a male/female gender duality by combining the frame’s emphasis and its mythologizing strength along with the unexpected resistance of tights.
