TO GIVE SPACE

ILARIA MANCIA
&
A.da.t.

Dear guest, I have been asked to invite you to share an experience with you, and I have decided to leave you, for an evening, the space available, set up for you to use freely. I will give space to create the possibility of a change of perspective, in a sort of game of mirrors that overturns and questions the point of view of those who host and those who are hosted, of the curator, the artist and the spectator.

You will be free to appropriate the space, without me telling you how and when to act, letting your creativity and potential flow naturally, which will remain largely unknowable and, for this reason, disturbing, like the idea that you can replace me and stay here indefinitely. I will try to look at you as little as possible (and I know you will do the same), so as not to care about the judgment of my gaze and because your presence here simply reveals itself without becoming a work to be admired.

In the Taverna space you will move between a condition of confinement and, at the same time, of taking possession of the place. This ambivalence corresponds, I know, to a duplicity of my act of care of this evening because, in welcoming you, on the one hand I sacrifice my presence in space and on the other I affirm my decision to host you by defining the time and the place of your being there.

But, in the end, the desire that you feel at home is perhaps just my act of vanity, the vanity of the curator who shows her hospitality towards the other, for one night.
