The exhibition takes as its starting point two very different and contrasting representations of the gallery space, the architectural blueprint of the building and a hand-made sketch of the upper floor, in order to orchestrate and articulate a very abstract and self-reflective theatrical set. Drawing on the Brechtian belief that a play is never reality itself but rather a mere representation of it, the show takes the form of a patterned and ever-fluid scenario in which white walls become lines, lines become objects and objects become images adorning the white walls. In this sense, the works on display act as a very personal and affectionate description of the space and its habitual function, challenging its theatrical potential while constantly replacing reality with imagination.
