NOMAD MUSEUM HEADQUARTER, city psychiatric asylum 1772-1996, Luca Rossi 2021
After 12 years, in 2021, the “Nomad Museum” is born: a project by Luca Rossi that synthesises a new nature of the contemporary art museum and consequently of the definitions of artwork and artist. The symbolic location of this museum is the site of a psychiatric asylum that was in operation from 1772 to 1996. The now sealed and inaccessible site of the asylum perfectly represents the idea of a museum that can and does happen anywhere in the world.
By left hand fingertips ksdjsadkljasldkjalksd, saliva stains and dust on your screen, various materials, Luca Rossi 2021.
Our screen, as in the previous intervention, plays a central role and becomes the focus of our existence. In this case the screen is the boundary of our private dimension, the extension of the surface of our cave. Our fingertips play a fundamental role today, connecting us with our mobile phone but also with the reality of the world. These sculptures are made with the fingertips just as if they were on the wall of a primitive cave. They are very fast works because they are always in the same place and at the same time as the viewer, who can only see them the instant he looks at them from his screen. This series of works, created in 2009, anticipates and exceeds the NFT philosophy: on the one hand, the spots of saliva and dust make each fruition unique, and, on the other hand, this fruition is completely free and open to all without all the superstructure of environmental pollution and speculation that the use of cryptocurrency brings.

This project, which has been going on since 2014, aims to create a museum in people’s homes. Using materials that everyone can already find in their homes, Luca Rossi creates works on commission where the buyer can choose three modern or contemporary artists to be brought together in the same art piece. The work in the museum appears hidden, hidden inside the boxes. The work is only visible to the buyer once it arrives at his home. This project would like to reactivate our imagination and allow us to be surprised again.
The global policies with which Documenta 15 wants to relate can only adopt choices of buoyancy and never of real change. This is because, firstly, there are global constraints that do not allow individual states any possibility of effective action, and secondly because modern states can only adopt short-term policies necessary for purely electoral reasons.
On the occasion of Documenta 15, in June 2022, Luca Rossi will carry out a project on German territory but which can be followed worldwide.
