SYNESTHESIA by Loukia Tsafoulia and Severino Alfonso – USA/Venice/Rome 2021/2022
The continuity is the hallmark of the collaboration between Loukia Tsafoulia and Severino Alfonso and ARTECARGO by Italia Cargo.
At first, the import of their artwork “Synesthesia” from the USA up to Venice, for the 17th Architecture Biennial.
Then, the transport of this multisensorial and interactive installation up to Rome, during its Italian tour, for the exhibition in the beautiful setting of Mercati di Traiano – Museo dei Fori Imperiali in April 2022.
“The title Synesthesia is used symbolically to evoke the sense of a place that brings together sight, sensation, movement, touch, memory and perception. Formally conceived as an irregular sphere – a central nucleus of multiple projections with a shapeless structure – the installation acts by attracting the visitor’s curiosity to its distorted geometry, to its transcendent form that contrasts with the surrounding space.”
After the stop in Rome, the installation continues its tour in other European countries.
