MARS presents "Firmament", a solo show by Debora Hirsch, curated by Fabio Carnaghi.
The exhibition is the third in a series of special projects entitled “My Room On Mars” that will present new points of view of MARS as anomalous white cube.
In her artistic practice, Debora Hirsch explores the ambiguity of contemporary communication system, heterogeneous language and post-digital culture.
In the site-specific project that she conceived for Mars, Debora Hirsch evokes nebulae and constellations, there where the space is absolute zero, the tabula rasa in which, like tiles of a mosaic, the suspended artworks migrate to unveil a world of hidden meanings that reality encloses. The subject of knowledge implies then an epistemic effort, a disclosure that the digitized surface hides and blurs.
