CLOSING SOON presents In vitro, a solo exhibition of Giulia Savorani.
Giulia’s latest installation consists of 218 used glass storage jars. As household test tubes, these jars contain ingredients and create conditions suitable for the growth of germs.
The artist makes handmade formulations based on fruits, vegetables and herbs and explores the natural processes of fermentation. In contrast to the obsessions around cleanliness and disinfection, this exhibition treats microorganisms as carriers of beneficial effects for the human organism.
In nature, there is no concept of good and evil, there is only the principle of the optimal possible balance, which is achieved through the coexistence of opposites. Giulia Savorani proposes an act of diffusion and participation in the alchemical creation of a regenerative substance. Her goal is to claim a dynamic harmony, through continuous reflection, synthesis and research.
The visitors of the exhibition are invited to collect and keep the formulations, along with detailed instructions related to their creation and maintenance.
The exhibition In vitro is the outcome of Giulia’s residency at CLOSING SOON in September 2021.
