Mixed Media installation
At Forte Marghera, I worked on the theme of Confession, Guilt, Punishment and Lies. I based my work on an incomplete novel of C.Brockden Brown, an 18th century pre-romantic writer, that revolved around supernatural powers and confession, and luciferine methods of mind control. within the landscape of the fort, i wanted to stage an ideal film adaptation of the novel, and the installation was to be a conceptual indicator of this possible film. Four pilons, found on site, and painted white, serve as a reference to radio waves and mind control, while a series of white chairs located inside some old concrete storage rooms referenced confession.Exhibited from the 13th to the 23rd of May 2011.
