Glass wrap, projection, winter, bucket d 30 cm. Context-specific work, overall dimensions variable.
Cuore (Heart), was commissioned and created for Toast, an artist-run space opened inside what used to be a porter’s lodge, in a dismissed tobacco factory in Florence. It finds its source in the affective and material relations between the space and its absence inhabitant and both with the abandoned industrial landscape. In the space, a video projection creates flashes of light that make vibrant the small loggia, whose windows have been covered with an opaque wrap that evokes the effect of condensation. Through a small window left slightly open, visitors can see a bottomless bucket lying on the floor.
The installation was made in the middle of winter: the temperature was about 0 degrees.
