Giulia Cenci at Artissima

Time is under our soles. Its flowing generates our past and under our feet walks our future. Giulia Cenci’s work for Artissima is all about the preciousness of time, its way of building and deconstructing things, and the impossibility for men to contain it. That’s what a visitor can feel once related with the box of SpazioA Gallery. Cenci’s idea is a mix between an installation, a performance where visitors are the protagonists, and a personal consideration about the durability of an artwork.

To reach her goal, Cenci uses different media. Covering the stand’s walkable surface with a material used for protecting the floor when still in its “packaging,” she calls the visitors to take a walk on it, transforming its shape at every step, while on the walls she puts two screens showing what happened in the days before the opening of the exhibition. The ever-changing present, evolving with the opening time of the fair, and the stillness of the past shown on the screens will be solved by drying the tiles at the end of Artissima. If you want me again / look for me under your boot-soles – statement which is also the title of Cenci’s work – comes from The Monument by Mark Strand, and it’s an indication on how to combine the elements and understand that we can still talk about the past and the future as places that do not exist.

Giulia Cenci is one of the artists selected by the team of young curators of the Present / Future exhibition at Artissima, Turin. If you want me again / look for me under your boot-soles has been conceived especially to be exhibited at SpazioA Gallery‘s stand inside the art fair.
