Condominium-Museum, via S. Giovanni Battista La Salle 16, Turin

In a 19th century building in the heart of Turin’s Porta Palazzo district, the artist Brice Coniglio and the Kaninchen-Haus Association have created the first experiment of a Condominium-Museum, a place where the care of spaces and relationships is entrusted to the transformative power of art. As part of the project, entitled Viadellafucina16 as the ancient name of the street that houses the building, the New patrons’ action has been activated with the aim of creating a work for the imposing entrance hall capable of interpreting the on-going process of regeneration, entrusted to the master of abstraction Giorgio Griffa. The artist has created a work that welcomes and accompanies the steps of those who enter and those who leave. Seventy-three blue glazed earthenware tiles are arranged on the vaults towards the interior of the building, and then break up into a free composition, thereby suggesting the idea that order and disorder are two complementary states that are necessary to each other. Akin to the relationship between the inside and the outside, the I and the otherus and them in all its different sizes: a house, a building, a city, a country.
