A SPACE FOR PIERRE
1st edition, Turin, Artissima 18, 2011
2nd edition, SCHENGEN BAROQUE PASOLINI, Church of San Paolo Converso, Milan 2019
Designed and built for a friend, Pierre Bal Blanc, this archetypal space – built on the basis of ‘sezione aurea’ and, because of this, mindful of Pettena’s many ‘archithoughts’ - presents the artist/curator with a ‘tabula rasa’, that is to say with endless creative possibilities. Each work or performance (like here at Artissima), either imagined or promoted by the curator, will not be diminished but rather magnified by the perfect simplicity of the space where it is hosted.
