Fiamma Montezemolo: Passing
Neon Afterwards
Thursday, February 01 - Friday, April 06, 2018



Passing, is the first solo exhibition of the artist Fiamma Montezemolo between the Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua and El Paso, Texas border, taking place in Proyectos Impala an art gallery inside a trailer truck (MX), and the Stanlee and Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts (USA).

Montezemolo will present two installations that dialogue with each other across the border not only as a physical, political and militarily identified space in recent years as the biggest obstacle for thousands of immigrants, but into the geopolitical and metaphorical borders of language in a globalized world.

As part of the Passing collaboration, the Rubin Center will be hosting an installation of Neon Afterwards, an immersive installation in which 7 sentences, written in fluorescent LED blue light tubes, float at different heights in the dark space of a room. The sentences are extracted from the Borges' short story 'The Anthropologist (1969). In an adjacent room, 3 books containing the mentioned story are exhibited with the key LED sentences erased with a blue tape. The story is therefore disseminated in different spaces.
