For the last two decades, Fondazione Prada’s activities have analyzed intentions and relevance through an evolution of projects. These have included ‘Utopian’ monographic artist commissions, contemporary philosophy conferences, research exhibitions and initiatives related to the field of cinema. Curated by the Fondazione Prada Thought Council, “Slight Agitation” continues with Infection, a second installment by Pamela Rosenkranz.
The show experience intensifies as day turns to night, engaging with the Fondazione’s nocturnal character. Members of the public have a direct, intimate experience of the sculptural intervention from a number of angles: at ground level and also from above, emphasizing the formal qualities of the Cisterna: its volume, its heaviness, its religious invocation. An uneasy feeling around biological determination engages multiple senses: smell, heat and coldness, mass and density, light and its absence. Pamela Rosenkranz’s Intervention furthers the ambitions of “Slight Agitation” by offering immersion into a new sensation of embodiment and collectivity.
