A captivating site-specific project in which historic works alternate with more recent sculptures and installations.

About

A gigantic expanse of mattresses covering more than 100 square metres, topped by another expanse, identical but overturned to create a padded cave, a narrow space for play or meditation into which the public is invited to climb.

At the entrance, suspended above the heads of the public is a dense web of cushions knotted together and coloured in red and yellow. Intense fragrances are diffused in the air from sculptures of minuscule sofas drenched in perfume. The space is totally rethought, large and small confront one another and the works encourage interaction on the part of the public.

This is the exhibition Paola Pivi. World record, the monographic show that the Musem is dedicating to this surprising artist, winner of a Golden Lion at the 1999 Venice Biennale. Whether they are colossal or minuscule pieces, the engaging works of Paola Pivi change the spirit of the place housing them and activate the senses of visitors, subverting the classical confines between public space and intimacy.
