16-30 May. Sala 1 presents Under the Same Roof, a collective installation conceived and constructed by four artists of different nationalities: Marina Buening, Kristien de Neve, Anita Guerra, Maria Korporal.
The artists were inspired by the challenges and fears that can emerge when sharing a common living space, expressing in this work the desire and the need for a harmonious cohabitation. As a visual metaphor, they have chosen a bamboo structure of a simple octagonal building with four entrances and four walls.
The vertical planes, like walls, act as a diaphragm dividing inside from outside and intersect with the corresponding horizontal plane, replicating the human condition: living beings in an upright position, as communicating elements between heaven and earth. Each artist connects the horizontal plane that touches the ground with the one touching the sky with her vertical wall, and in turn, interprets and interacts with one another’s vertical structures.
The images projected by Maria Korporal skim the sheer gauze fabric of Anita Guerra’s piece; the hexagonal mirrors by Kristien De Neve reflect part of the installation by Marina Buening that uses the selfies of the four artists involved.
Inauguation on Wednesday 16 May at 18.00, for information see Sala 1 website.
