How have the recent restrictions and social distancing affected our personal interactions and how are we adapting to these changes? Which new refections are needed in regards to our sociality? How can we rethink the experience of art and in which spaces, modalities and contexts?

Invisible Labyrinth is an installation seemingly re-emerging from the past to be explored again and to offer a new interpretation of the challenges faced by our social relations. In the installation our desire to reconnect plays a game of entrances and exits, of closeness and distance. The labyrinth takes an ambiguous meaning: it is a physical, social and spiritual space we could both lose and find ourselves in. Like in a mirror maze without walls, in Invisible Labyrinth one’s refection can be found in the other. Through meanders and the individual’s gaze, identities gradually become collectivity.

A concept originally thought for outdoor congregation developed in collaboration with Francesca Lando of Immuto Collective for the first time in a site-specific version for Spazio Leonardo in Milan thanks to UNA Galleria (Piacenza). 

The installation is coupled with a video by Riccardo Buscarini in collaboration with Matteo Rapalli and Fausto Mazza, in which dancers Melania Pallini and Laura Gazzani activate the labyrinth through a choreography inspired by its forms.
