For her first survey exhibition, Italian artist Rossella Biscotti draws a trajectory that reflects on the conflicting yet overlapping notions of history and memory. In the exhibition, five major works from the past five years compose an architecture that departs from Biscotti’s research into the institutional forms developed by society to control and discipline, and continues to map the deeper layers of the mind. The title refers to a case study of Russian psychologist Alexander Luria that concentrates on ‘S.’, a young man with an incredibly vast but bizarre memory.
Memory is one of Biscotti’s primary angles when investigating the cracks and marks of historical processes, which are presented both in a physical and symbolic way.
