Living Rooms wants to give a voice to the artists and associations of the Piedmont area, putting the project at the centerthe territory, artistic creation and life.
The project was born with the intention of reactivating the rooms of Pavilion A of the former IPI (city orphanage until the 1980s) abandoned since 2013 and to do so through art. The rooms created by the artists(part I)
they are experienced, once completed, by others: associations, artists, musicians(part II).
The fundamental point is living, life in its thousand facets, the past life of places, the present in the artist's relationship with the other, the future with the relationship of the work with the lives of others.
The work that falls within a merely "exhibition" logic accepts that the public remains as such, withLiving Rooms the elements of the project are closely linked to the dimension of life. Experiencing the rooms as a place, not as a simple architectural space: this is what distinguishes places from non-places, crossing spaces without connotation that we all feel like strangers.
Part I The artists
To create the rooms, the artists dealt with the Flashback Habitat project, with history, with the people who lived part of their existence in Corso Giovanni Lanza 75 and with the future inhabitants, in an intertwining that goes beyond the mere artistic dimension to rediscover oneself as human, social and emotional.
