Punto Zero. An object that wanted to change the World

Punto Zero. An object that wanted to change the world, is an exhibition curated by the students

of the School for Curatorial Studies Venice. This event has been created in collaboration with

Video Sound Art Milan, a festival and production centre of contemporary art, Coordinated by

Laura Lamonea (artistic director and curator) and Thomas Ba (curator). The students have

developed a curatorial project investigating the invisible qualities of objects. Through installations,

sculptures, sound, and site-specific performative events, the visitor will have the opportunity to

confront the nature of the objects that surround us.

The exhibition can be visited between the 13 and 21 of May at Istituto secondario di primo grado

Pier Fortunato Calvi, located between the Giardini and the Arsenale of the Venice Biennale.

An object is a physical entity, that in its tangibility, contains values, narratives and

memories. It is a medium but also an origin, a starting point for narrating and remembering, a

punto zero.

The space of the school symbolizes the place of our first encounters with socialization, and

therefore it is where hierarchies are set and experienced. Reflecting in this way the dynamics of

society. Resembling a punto zero where power relations get established through the arrangement

of desks, chairs, and other objects.

The objects are charged with both individual and collective memory. They become, through the

artists’ interventions, tools to reactivate these memories and evoke new ways of relating to them.

The desk, the blackboard, the bell, are therefore protagonists of the performances. Inviting the

visitors to reflect upon the power of objects to create relations with society and individuals.

Punto Zero is an intervention that aims to involve all visitors in the exhibition by welcoming

contributions such as images, texts, sentences and drawings that summarize what was or is an

object that changed the world. Creating an archive, all these contributions will be set up in a

dedicated room dealing with the curatorial research that the students have been investigating in

the past months.

Punto zero is an object, any. But which object wanted to change the world?

The artists participating in the exhibition are: Alvise Bittente, Oli Bonzanigo, Ludovico Colombo,

Marilisa Cosello, Lea Pedri Stocco, Pierluigi Scandiuzzi, Lorenzo Servetti, Davide Zulli.

The exhibition has been curated by the students of the 30th Course in Curatorial Practice and

Contemporary Art of the School for Curatorial Studies Venice: Rebecca Canavesi, Carlotta

Carosso, Tommaso Carradori, Nora Criado Diaz, Sofia Fongaro, Paola Lavra, Elena Lenzi, Lisa

Angelica Manente, Ada Maroni, Beatrice Mercanti, Luz Otxoa, Lucrezia Odorici, Claudia Palli,

Denise Patrascan, Adriana Pizzo, Gaia Serafini, Marco Tiberi, Marilisa Vanin.
