[6 October 2007 – 6 January 2008, Kunst Merano Arte, Merano, Italy] In contrast to the space of the city, institutional art spaces are deliberately set up as an incubator for yet-to-be-erased visions. Into its space, the temporary projections of artists – time after time, exhibition after exhibition – are inscribed and re-written. None of them ever stays.
Occupation Game – to & to & to… traces the outlines of the space claimed by all artworks on exhibit in the Kunst Merano Arte space since its inauguration in six years ago. Through this, a mapping of the ‘history’ of the artistic occupation of the Kunst Merano Arte space is made, revealing in return what was never used or occupied.
to & to & to… is the second project in the sequence Occupation games – examining the power of occupation and control of urban space by temporary interventions.
It is part of FROM_&_TO: From Trentino South Tyrol to the Rest of the World and Back, and made on invitation by artist Stefano Cagol. The Exhibition opens on Saturday, 6 October 2007 at 11.30 a.m. For the images visit: www.studiopesci.it
