Botto&Bruno. Society, you’re a crazy breed         09.03.2016 | 19.06.2016

March 9   June 19, 2016

curated by Beatrice Merz and Maria Centonze

Fondazione Merz presents Society, you’re a crazy breed a new project by artists Botto&Bruno conceived as one large installation that relates to the exhibition space, and particularly focuses on its symbolic value as an abandoned industrial building converted into a cultural venue.

The exhibit – starting with its title, taken from Eddie Vedder’s song “Society” from the “Into the Wild” soundtrack – is a sort of cry to reflect upon the future of our society and its contemporary madness, which tends to reset memory to create a present without history, a present that is built on ruins. To quote Marc Augé: “Future history will no longer produce ruins. It does not have the time for them”.

Voyager à TURIN : Castello di Rivoli, Giovanni Anselmo jusqu’au 11 septembre 2016






06 Apr 2016 25 Sep 2016

Giovanni Anselmo

Mentre la mano indica, la luce focalizza, nella gravitazione universale si interferisce, la terra si orienta, le stelle si avvicinano di una spanna in più…

Inauguration: April 5, 2016

On view: April 6 – September 11, 2016

Curated by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Marcella Beccaria


Among the first artists displaying work at the Castello di Rivoli when it opened in 1984, Giovanni Anselmo (Borgofranco d’Ivrea, Turin, 1934) holds his first-ever solo exhibition in a museum in Turin. One of Italy’s most internationally acclaimed artists, Anselmo debuted as part of the Arte Povera movement during the second half of the 1960s while engaged in research aimed at highlighting the potential presence of the invisible in the visible. This constant dialogue between the visible and the invisible, the material and the immaterial, makes Anselmo’s work as pertinent as ever and of increasing interest to younger generations who have grown up in the age of the Internet. His materials visible to spectators are natural elements and industrially made products, often seemingly modest: slide projectors, magnetic needles, granite stone, photographs, dirt, and bands of ultramarine blue. Instead, his invisible materials include magnetic fields, electromagnetic waves, and the surrounding space we find ourselves in.

Conceived in close collaboration with the artist, the exhibition unfolds on the third floor of the Manica Lunga. Starting with the work Interferenza umana nella gravitazione universale (1969), Anselmo has put together a unique itinerary that enhances the building’s architectural flow and its orientation with respect to the apparent motion of the Sun along the east-west axis. As part of this itinerary, which, overall, actually constitutes a new installation, there will also be some other works by the artist, including a few important ones from the past. Moreover, the project will also be accompanied by the publication of a scholarly and artistic catalogue as well as a re-edition of the rare artist’s book, Leggere (1971–1972).
