‘Hotel Italia’ by Nostra Signora
‘Hotel Italia’ is the latest project from Atelier Nostra Signora, hosted by Mixer, a multipurpose art space based in the Tophane district of Istanbul. The exhibition is curated by Nostra Signora, with the participation of Marcello Faletra and Antonia Cassarà, and will be open to the public between 10th and 29th of September 2013, as a parallel event of the 13th International Istanbul Biennial.
Palermo based Nostra Signora have undertaken several years of activities aimed at fostering a dialogue between various cities and spaces under the contextual borders of artistic creation. The involved artists are: Philippe Berson, Jesse Gagliardi, Cesare Inzerillo, Simone Mannino and Riccardo Scibetta.
The exhibition, to be held at Mixer, will consist of a site-specific intervention intended to cast a reflection over the transient nature of travelling and the confines of living in a room, which at the same time, is both a physical and imaginary place. Hotel Italia is a group multi-disciplinary exhibition to be made up of painting, photography, sculpture, video and installation.
