Sassolino’s works have danger, mechanical tension, darkness and make the spectator vaguely uneasy (“Is this going to break? Will i be hurt? Shouldn’t it take one step back?”) In fact, the artist also explained that the beams vibrate but they hold the pressure. The system actually gets in motion when a visitor gets closer to the work. And that’s when, as the artist puts it, a kind of Sadomasochistic moment emerges: the visitor would like to see some dramatic collapse of the wooden structure but doesn’t dare to get too close to it


The exhibition presents works and installations by international artists designed to trigger a reflection on the political, social and cultural implications – but also on the impact on personal life – of the new relationship between man and technology under the guise of the “virtual identity” with which we increasingly confront reality, at times without even realizing it.
