About the exhibition

 

The focus of the exhibition, which is being conceived and realised together with the Kunsthaus Graz and the Kunst Museum Winterthur, is the house and the spatial orders and power structures associated with it. Accordingly, the presentations unfold kaleidoscopically around dwelling, domesticity, protection, destruction, normativity, control, but also loss of control as well as breaking out of normativities and gender roles.

The work As Walls Keep Shifting is the focus. It is half of the 1:1 wooden skeleton of an Italian two-family house, a "villetta". This expansive structure functions as an installation, sculpture and stage in equal measure and forms the framework for further works by Bonvicini as well as for performances, readings and concerts by other artists from the fields of literature, music and the performative arts.

In addition, the Kunsthaus Graz is showing Bonvicini's photo series Italian Homes, photographs of over-moulded and redesigned serially built residential buildings in Lombardy in the late 1970s. Bonvicini's photos of these "villete" explore various forms of appropriation by its inhabitants and raise questions about individuality and singularity in the midst of a standardised and homogenised environment.
