23 Oct - 30 Nov 2006


Two years after their first solo show at Monitor, the gallery has the pleasure to announce, for the second time in its space, the group ZimmerFrei (Massimo Carozzi, Anna de Manincor, Anna Rispoli) that will present a selection of last works realized with the support of the Man Museum in Nuoro and the Civic Gallery in Trento.
One of the works most significant playing on the show, the video entitled Why we came, shot in april 2006 on the Berchidda's beach (Sardinia), it has been co-produced by Man Museum for the project Site Specific curated by Maria Rosa Sossai.
As the same artists marked, Why we came intends to re-find the desert, the vastness of empty spaces; it establishes a "mineral" relation with the nature and with every aspect of what hanging over humans: accelerated big skies, virgin spaces where it is possible leave a trace, only on the sand.
Figures invade the shot, waiting for finding out the real reason of their coming. They modify the landscape with structural interventions, and out-line obstinate trajectories.
As provisional work of reclaimed land, a shovel stuck in the sand digs and reveals the body's inadequacy to the labour or to the standstill.
And the landscape during its incessant transformation swallows humans signs re-establishing a hierarchy of the permanent.
