Architetture dell’isolamento (Architecture of Isolation) is a complex and articulate project that draws an analysis of fringes, power, crossings and the concept of normality itself. The solo exhibition, opened on Saturday 25 September, will run until 30 January 2022.
What is triggered in people’s minds when they take a road that leads inevitably towards a kind of cognitive isolation from the rest of society, an ‘other’ space in which it becomes impossible to define a real will of the individual in creating this same condition? An event that can be assimilated into a landslide, destined to continue until reassembled. In this new order, the inner space begins to coincide with and adhere to the exterior, with no more distinctions or boundaries.
Following the first lockdown in March 2020, Eugenio Tibaldi visits an elegant apartment in the centre of Turin, abandoned for a decade. His interest in working on mutations, margins and peripheries, in both social and cultural, and above all in mental, ideological and psychological spheres, leads him to question and investigate the accumulation of objects, of every type and origin, that are found, completely covered in dust, inside the house. A huge amount of materials collected obsessively by the person who has spent the last ten years of his life confined to that space, refusing all contact with the outside.
In the project Architetture dell'isolamento the human condition of this persona is not called to witness; it is of little importance who he/she was and how he/she was physically. Instead, there emerges the posthumous construction of the conceptual palimpsest of a choice, a possible way that exists within each of us, in which any concept of external space is cancelled, allowing oneself to drift towards total social disappearance. An external dimension that, in this sense, vanishes in an absolute and objective acceptation. This space becomes only a simplified reference of the porous nature that forms us, that aggregates light and shadow according to our desire for gaze and emotional charge. A project in which collecting and deprivation go hand in hand and in which isolation, madness and the need to deprive oneself of any social life are formalised.
