The exhibition presents a selection of works by seven contemporary artists exploring the notion of trace in their research. The exploration of this theme moves in several directions: architectural-naturalistic, historical, social and relational.
Stepping into an historical space opens up a range of imaginative possibilities because its heritage becomes both a trace and a clue to meld together new possibilities, new visions. The works of the invited artists are anchored to the cabinets and laid-out collections of Medieval and Renaissance artifacts in the museum rooms, to fragments and relics of ancient walls, to lapidaries and sarcophagi, with an approach based on assonance or visual steering.
In the work of these artists, the traces originate from research, but also from experiences that are grafted into daily events.
