TEXT

 Luca Rossi >>>> TATE MODERN

Is it possible to occupy a place with a text? When the Jews were forced to flee their land, they passed from the logic of the “monument” to that of the “document”, as something more adaptable to their future condition. They were forced to decode God.

Modifying or reacting to information in a text always means filling a space, a place. So why not do an exhibition like this, starting with just a text? Minimising, for once, the resources used? Fuel, travel, costs. Travelling does not mean moving but having the ability to “train new eyes”.

Only the extreme weakness of the imagination justifies the fact that we have to move in order to feel (Fernando Pessoa).

Luca Rossi decided to fill London’s Tate Modern with a text. The 5 interventions that will involve the museum space will always start from a text as if this were the DNA of the exhibition.

On this page you can buy a PDF document that will allow you to experience and physically enter Luca Rossi’s exhibition at the Tate Modern in London.

 

TEXT.

A text from 2013 recounts the action Luca Rossi carried out inside Senanque Abbey to rediscover the sense of a place suffocated by mass tourism; a text in 2015 allows us to find a sculpture inside the gardens of the Venice Biennale; reading a text inside the anti-aircraft shelter transformed into a wellness centre allows us to look at Western civilisation in a completely different way; a text allows us to change perspective inside the Fondazione Prada in Venice, thus being able to investigate what is hidden behind the surface of our screen; sculptures made with fingertips recall what were the first examples of text, inside primitive caves; in the series “images” a text allows us exclusive access to a sort of contemporary Sistine Chapel capable of resisting the dictatorship of the algorithm. 
A text allows us to have a completely unique experience of visiting a Tate Modern exhibition in London. The space of the museum seems to dilate to our private dimension, passing through real space to the irrelevance of space itself.
