Void is delighted to present BLACK MED SECCO, a solo exhibition by Invernomuto, the name of the artistic personality created in 2003 by Simone Bertuzzi and Simone Trabucchi.
Invernomuto’s works are research-based projects that often use cultural references as their starting points and utilise open systems to disseminate their work – outputs that take the form of moving images, sounds, performative actions, and publishing projects.
For their exhibition at Void, Invernomuto will create an immersive sonic, physical and visual environment referencing the Mediterranean basin. The historian David Abulafia refers to the Mediterranean as a sea with many names: an in-between sea or sea ‘between the lands’. He writes about the world having several ‘Mediterraneans’, all of which present us with vast, empty spaces like a sea or a desert that have helped to bring very different cultures into contact with each other.
Throughout this exhibition, Invernomuto delve into the idea of the sea historically being a crossroad of cultural exchanges and a space of contention that both separates us and brings us together. The exhibition creates opportunities for the audience to expand their cultural frameworks and explore their ideas of the periphery, the center and the in-between spaces that are often precarious, transitory and transactional.
