The show

Reek of past pitfalls is Caterina De Nicola's first solo exhibition in Milan, presenting a large site-specific installation within the space of the Istituto Svizzero. In her artistic practice, Caterina De Nicola works through writing, painting, sculpture, music and performance. She is interested in the idea of glitches and often uses found objects and symbols to question the very essence of form, meaning and aesthetic taste. As a music producer, Caterina De Nicola is influenced by the subgenres of noise music.

Curated by Gioia Dal Molin.
