campo volo 5th May 2012 (Alessandro Quaranta: mosca / fly)

In Alessandro Quaranta’s work, already since some of his earlier endeavours, the motif of the observer is dominant and recurrent. “The observer” meaning a reversed point of view, where the observer happens to be observed, unbeknownst to him, and when establishing hierarchies (if there actually are any) starts to get difficult.
Who is the true subject of the action? The internal or the external observer? And which role does the so-called audience have, in this particular context?
On the seventh edition (and the first of this year) of campo volo, on Saturday 21st April 2012, from 4.30 pm to 7 pm, the artist from Turin will showcase a brand new work - unveiled to the public for the very first time - at blank in via Reggio 27 in Turin.

At campo volo, the audience can expect to attend each time an epiphanic event, unique and unrepeatable, coming into contact with the various authors, whose presence will be osmotic with the presence of the work itself, which will sometimes come to life beneath the very eyes of the onlookers, and will be removed from their sight at the end of each event.
campo volo is an area with uncertain boundaries, founded on a transient and unpronounceable concept, where action and inaction, light and dark, inside and outside tend to cross over, establishing non-permanent associations.
