Installation at Palazzo Costantino, Palermo, IT
Collaboration with Michele Tiberio

Like all cities, Palermo harbours parallel realities that are not equally and immediately accessible. Behind the scenes of what was once called Theatre of the Sun in the centre of old town (Quattro Canti), the interior of Palazzo Costantino was restaged using lighting, a guiding system, and sculptural interventions. Allowing the eyes and expectations to readjust, layer upon layer of presence was summonned inside the disused landmark, soon to re-emerge at the surface
of the city.
