I gom­mo­ni di Ai Wei­wei /

Ai Wei­wei’s Din­ghies

Abitare - - BOOSTER -

Twen­ty-two oran­ge re­scue din­ghies are an­cho­red (un­til 22 Ja­nua­ry) to two of the faça­des of Pa­laz­zo Stroz­zi in Flo­ren­ce, fra­ming the win­do­ws. The in­stal­la­tion, whi­ch stirs the con­scien­ce and dra­ws at­ten­tion to the dra­ma­tic ex­pe­rien­ces of mi­gran­ts, is the work of the Chi­ne­se dis­si­dent ar­ti­st Ai Wei­wei, to whom the Flo­ren­ti­ne foun­da­tion is de­di­ca­ting Ita­ly’s fir­st ma­jor re­tro­spec­ti­ve, cu­ra­ted by Ar­tu­ro Ga­lan­si­no. An ex­hi­bi­tion – whi­ch in­clu­des sculp­tu­res, ob­jec­ts, pho­to­gra­phs and vi­deos from the pa­st 20 years – that shi­nes a light on one of the mo­st im­por­tant fi­gu­res in con­tem­po­ra­ry art and po­li­ti­cal ac­ti­vi­sm.

Pre­sti­di­gi­to­rium, (MS) Ven­ti­due gom­mo­ni di sal­va­tag­gio aran­cio­ni so­no an­co­ra­ti (fi­no al 22 gen­na­io) a due fac­cia­te di Pa­laz­zo Stroz­zi di Fi­ren­ze, in­cor­ni­cian­do­ne le fi­ne­stre. L’in­stal­la­zio­ne che scuo­te le co­scien­ze e at­ti­ra l’at­ten­zio­ne sul dram­ma dei mi­gran­ti, è ope­ra dell’ar­ti­sta dis­si­den­te ci­ne­se Ai Wei­wei, cui la fon­da­zio­ne fio­ren­ti­na de­di­ca la pri­ma gran­de re­tro­spet­ti­va ita­lia­na, cu­ra­ta da Ar­tu­ro Ga­lan­si­no. Un per­cor­so espo­si­ti­vo – tra scul­tu­re, oggetti, fo­to­gra­fie e vi­deo de­gli ul­ti­mi vent’anni – che fa lu­ce su una del­le fi­gu­re più im­por­tan­ti dell’ar­te con­tem­po­ra­nea e dell’at­ti­vi­smo po­li­ti­co.
