The show

On the other hand, from 4 March to 5 June 2022, the Salvatore Vitale exhibition curated by Chiara Dall’Olio will take place at FMAV Palazzo Santa Margherita Decompressed Prism. The exhibition is in collaboration with the DIG Association and with the support of the Swiss Cultural Foundation Pro Helvetia.

The exhibition combines in a single large site-specific installation, elements of fiction, documents and real data, still and moving images, films and archival research in order to reveal the paradoxes contained in the systemic logic of social monitoring. Vitale with his work shows us how the society we live in increasingly resembles an airport, in which public life is subjected to ever higher levels of surveillance and security.

Airports are in fact the most controlled places and despite being transit areas, this is where surveillance has a profound impact on human behavior: travelers are monitored in their physical experience, constantly "seen" by cameras and sensors, and in their size. of data, analyzed and monitored by different types of biometric technologies for security reasons. His project therefore invites us to reflect on the dematerialization of bodies and on the possible counter-strategies that we, citizens and political subjects, can undertake to promote greater transparency of the systems that regulate society and that shape individual codes and behaviors.

The installation conceived for Palazzo Santa Margherita includes an unpublished two-channel video accompanied by an immersive six-channel sound environment (including voice, ambient sounds and music) and a plexiglass sculpture, set up to build a coherent but non-linear narrative . The idea of ​​the installation is to imagine a normalization of surveillance in the wake of a new realism
