Rivoluzione Vedova is designed as an introductory space in which to explore artistic figure Emilio Vedova, studded with crucial events that revolutionized the history of the 20th century. In addition to the exhibition hall, visitors can discover Vedova’s world through a multimedia black box and a full programme of educational workshops.
The exhibition, designed by Alvisi Kirimoto, introduces a “splinter” — a complex structure, made up of three folded and asymmetrical sheets — into the space to define three distinct areas. Entering the room, one is totally immersed in Vedova’s universe through his disruptive work…in continuum, compenetrazioni/traslati ’87/’88, whose expressive power and spatial articulation conquer the visitor. The second area hosts the Plurimi from the Absurdes Berliner Tagebuch ’64 cycle, composed of seven elements made with hinged structures, two of which are suspended and invade the space. The third section, on the other hand, is dotted with the presence of the Dischi, which float in space, and the Tondi, lying on the ground or hanging from the “splinter”. At the end of the labyrinth of pieces, slightly detached from the rest, stands Chi brucia un libro brucia un uomo, the work linked to the Sarajevo library fire in 1992, which is of very strong symbolic value.
