Gianluigi Colin: Streets Of Memory
Edited by Moreno Gentili. Essays by Arturo Carlo Quintavalle, Gianni Riotta, Matteo Collura, Lalla Romano and Francesco Durante.
Jorge Luis Borges once said that We are our memory, we are this dreamlike museum of shifting shapes. Streets of Memory, created by Gianluigi Colin, is none other than the census of this universe of forms, reconstructed through performances in numerous cities: from Milan to Naples, from Rome to Buenos Aires. Photos, documents, letters and other small fragments from the sentimental sphere (but also memories hidden in the intangible reaches of the Internet) are transformed by the language of copy art from intimate shades of emotion into just as many new and extraordinary icons. What results is an archive of the signs of our society, of our truest identity--a prophetic portrayal of our existence.
