NO SELF by ATELIER CONTENCIOSO, curated by Antonio Lettieri, proposes an investigation into the idea of Ego, consciousness and the absence of the Self. In a society centered on the exploration of images, in which the constant comparison with what is projected on social networks inhibits and conditions the construction of identity, Atelier Contencioso suggest a visit to the ancestral home. In this mirror-place populated by shadows or projections of the self, a place of imitation and vestigial space, we discover a garden of daffodils that, flagrantly, can be seen in a reflection. In contrast, we are faced with the house that burns or is dismantled, once a labyrinth of life, now with life in abeyance.
