The show

VIP = Violation of the Pauli exclusion principle is the new project by Margherita Morgantin produced by Xing and realized thanks to the support of the Italian Council (VIII edition, 2020), the program for the promotion of Italian contemporary art in the world of the Directorate General for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and for Tourism.

VIP is a research path that is practiced in the observation of some images of subnuclear and astroparticle physics in relation to the artistic imagination, to personal sensitivity as a form of scientific data. The title borrows the name of one of the particle physics experiments in progress for years in the underground laboratories of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics of Gran Sasso: VIP is the acronym that names one of the experimentation projects on 'impossible atoms' , whose appearance would represent a violation of the Pauli exclusion principle, still considered today among the cornerstones of our scientific understanding of the universe and matter.

In VIP = Violation of the Pauli exclusion principle the artist's body and experience become part of the scientific tools used for field research. VIP is articulated between 2020 and 2021 through different degrees of involvement of various interlocutors and the public, as well as the re-elaboration and presentation of its results.

VIP takes place UNDER THE MOUNTAIN, in the largest underground laboratory in the world dedicated to the detection of rare phenomena and physical events that should not take place, thanks to the 'cosmic silence' guaranteed by a massive layer of rocks that separates these laboratories from the atmosphere; and ABOVE THE MOUNTAIN, on the plateaus of the Abruzzo national park in an environmental area that is important for its high altitude biodiversity.
