an indipendent project for The 15th Istanbul Biennial entitled “a good neighbor” and curated by artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset
Helvetia Spa, Thermal and Wellness Area (Porretta Terme, Bologna)
“95% of our choices and actions depend on our unconscious part.
Our unconscious is the “hardest” neighbor to handle because we can not handle it. ” (Luca Rossi)
The art piece is installed in our private dimension, exactly where we are now. The anti-aerial hideout has become a SPA and health resort: a significant place that combines local, western and east. Porretta Terme is located within the “Peripheral West”, which can be considered a safe area with regard to international tensions and instability.
