As is often the case with Giovanni Anselmo’s work, the long title – “Senza titolo, invisibile, dove le stelle si avvicinano di una spanna in più, mentre oltremare appare verso Sud-Est, e la luce focalizza...” – is like a formula, almost a short story, which describes installations that could be considered landscapes to observe while “looking out of the window of our imagination”. His work is like a paradigm that is constantly being recreated and which orients itself differently every time it encounters a new space and dimension: in this case the Carlo Scarpa space at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice.

 

Anselmo has envisaged a project for the Carlo Scarpa space inspired by the precision and essential rigour that the place itself suggested to him. For this exhibition the route he has created unwinds through four elements-works: one work for each space, to give direction and create a tension towards the exterior. The space Carlo Scarpa created for exhibitions is a closed one and is full of his details. Anselmo’s work manages to push it further and detach it from its iconic form.
