WILLI THE CAT
CURATED BY MASSIMO BARTOLINI AND LUCA TREVISANI

 

Exhibition dates: 13.11.2020 – 06.02.2021
Opening Day: 13.11.2020, 7pm – a conversation between Antonio Dalle Nogare, Nitzan Cohen, Massimo Bartolini, Luca Trevisani and others.

 

WILLI the Cat is an exhibition that explores some of the possible relationships that exist between humans and animals, men and buildings, living creatures and places, life and unanimated objects. From psychology to politics, from the voices heard by schizophrenics to the removal of the animal that lives inside of us and from outside, presses itself against a window to get inside, from the “barbarians” to the nomad and to the migrants, WILLI is a platform that develops by expanding some of the tastes of the idea of threshold, refuge, and dwelling, crossing from one perceptive state to another.

Architecture moulds our consciousness before we realize it, space commands with subtle imperative ways, but cats are phlegmatic, and teach us how to reject limits with elegance.

WILLI is a sensorial environment, a spatial and perceptual experience that displays some artworks of students of the Free University of Bolzano together with others from Antonio Dalle Nogare’s private collection, interwoven in a subliminal feeling.

 

WILLI is orchestrated by Massimo Bartolini and Luca Trevisani, with artworks by Allora & Calzadilla, Vincenzo Agnetti, Annika Althoff, Carl Andre, Charles Atlas, Filippo Contatore, Sara Cortesi, Chiara Duchi, Adriana Ghimp, Dan Graham, Jonas Kolecki, Richard Long, Gordon Matta-Clark, Lilian Polosek, Irene Rainer, Gregor Schneider, Andreas Slominski, Michael Ungerer, Italo Zuffi.

 

 

A collaboration between Antonio Dalle Nogare Foundation and the Faculty of Design and Art of the Free University of Bolzano.

With the support of Provincia Autonoma di Bolzano and Comune di Bolzano.
