Oriente Plazzi Marzotto
curated by Maximilian Pellizzari & Leonardo Cuccia
By recontextualising the different meanings that 'play' can take on, the selection of works by local and international artists in the exhibition investigates cultural, social and political aspects that this very notion can take on in our society. Throughout the exhibition, the works emphasise the importance of maintaining an openness to the world and things around us, creating unexpected relationships to challenge our preconceptions and understanding of reality. play escapes intends to conceptually address the way in which play can take an authoritarian turn, while at the same time conceiving it as a possibility to break free from the impositions of use and meaning.
