Bright colours, seductive scents, a sweet taste and a delicious acid note. Fruits are meant to be eaten. However, be careful... We all know that the most beautiful fruits are often the most dangerous ones. 

"Forbidden Fruit" is a research on the narrative that results when the white cube space ceases to be a means of exhibition, but a stage that is designed and transformed to produce stories along with the artworks. The playfulness and the possibility of failure are at the heart of our curatorial process and of the invited artists' practices. Therefore, we embrace the idea that the artworks we decide to present are not shown in their best light and we accept not to meet the white cube expectations. 

This one-day exhibition is like a fruit. You have to eat it while it is still good... the next day it's too late.
