Arte Alle Corti - Palazzo Carignano

In the work of Elisabetta Benassi entitled MareoMerz, a fishing boat hangs in the net the last car belonged to Mario Merz. Here it triggers a 'interaction between monumental architectural space, the center of the city and its history (and Italian history), and the open space, that of the journey, with a close relationship with the memory of the art (the car of Mario Merz, master of Turin, which is fished, as emblematic object of Arte Povera). But there is perhaps also an echo of what is happening these days in the "Mare Nostrum".

The opera MareoMerz is located in the courtyard of palazzo Carignano.

Exquisite architecture and quite a contrast with the old boat!
