Sonàrie. Waiting garden
by Antonio De Luca

curated by Ramdom
29 July 2017 Sound installation in via della Libertà

A place for waiting marked and routed by the sound, where the body listens to design its extension and crosses its invisible border. It’s the resonant expansion, which tailors the inside and outside. The resonant scenery and the silent time of waiting: here, the listening is for making an emptiness and to live in it.

Daniele D’Acquisto.
Regola

curated by Lorenzo Madaro
29.07–14.08 2017 19–22.30 o’clock in Via Vai, Palazzo Comi via XXIV Maggio

In the extreme essence and elemental nature of these five sculptural works belonging to Regola, D’Acquisto has arrived after a progressive path of formal simplification, freeing its work from the tight relationship with the flat surface to start occupation of the spaces even in their Accentuated verticality.

Eva Jospin
presented by Accademia di Francia in Rome – Villa Medici with Capo d’Arte

29.07 – 27.08 2017 19-23 o’clock in via XXIV Maggio

The installation of Eva Jospin reimagines an abandoned room in the old town of Gagliano. Eva has worked with olive trees and oaks, two plants which are threatened by bacteria that are likely to drastically change the local landscape. The work, aesthetically evocative and light, has a very strong and present message.
