Edition 2021




Ilaria Turba’s exhibition stems from three years’ work at the invitation of Le Zef-Scène Nationale de Marseille, where she connected desire with seeing and seeking new horizons. For the artist, this feeling speaks of a collective will to change in a time of global crisis, which depends on individuals and their ability to orient themselves differently in their everyday lives. Interviewing residents and users of Marseille’s northern districts, Ilaria Turba let the participants picture their own desires and see a long way. The interviews were conducted in two ways: in workshops and during spontaneous encounters while exploring places. The recordings were turned into images, drawings, objects, installations, and performances.
