The show

Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo presents the solo exhibition of Ludovica Carbotta (Turin, 1982).The exhibition centers on her ongoing project Monowe, underway since 2016, in which the artist has conceived and constructed an ideal city: an urban model created for a single individual. Through a plurality of expressive means, sculpture, installation, documents, sound works and performative actions, Carbotta gives shape to an evolving organism. Here, fiction and reality coexist in a dialectic relationship. Informed by various sources of inspiration, utopian and science-fiction literature, architectural theories, and sociological analysis, this project results in a sophisticated reflection on the contemporary civilian and her condition of isolation–as an effect of external forces, a strategy of self-protection, part of the legacy of a catastrophic past, or an opportunity for future survival.
Up until now, the city of Monowe has always been presented in fragments, whether displaying architectural remnants or elements with specific functions, such as the entryway, the factory, the museum, or the watchtower. These elements bring into play the social use of these architectures as institutions, a dimension put into crisis by the solitary status of the inhabitant. Thus, the city offers the opportunity to analyze, in abstract, the rules and conventions rendered obsolete by the disappearance of the community.
