Remains, Testimonies, Apparitions, and New Blends
Jul 13 – Aug 13, 2023
Spazio Generi Diversi da Josy 1940
Seborga, Italy

Galleria Galleria is pleased to announce the first retrospective of the Ilmuseo Project, titled Remains, Testimonies, Apparitions, and New Blends. The exhibition stems from the desire to introduce the public to the experimental contemporary art project Ilmuseo, an anonymous institution that was born in 2020 with the intention of promoting artistic experiences outside of traditional circuits. Through a combination of documents, photographs, and videos, visitors will be guided to discover thirteen artworks created between 2020 and 2021 in a disused shed along the Passo del Bandito in Seborga, Ligurian hinterland of Ponente.

In addition to the archival material, there will be three copies of Ilmuseo, an art object book that translates the museum experience into paper form. Freely accessible, the book provides a detailed exploration of the work carried out by Ilmuseo, offering visitors the opportunity to delve into the creative and theoretical process of the project.

The exhibition unfolds in an intimate dialogue with the space’s past history. The objects and furnishings of the former grocery store – Spazio Generi Diversi da Josy 1940 – become the supports on which to display the Remains, Testimonies, Apparitions of Ilmuseo. The two universes, as they meet, give rise to new artistic blends. The interaction of these two realities will culminate in a sound performance in which the different elements become co- protagonists of an unpublished audio track. Visitors will find themselves immersed in a multisensory experience. The sound performance will be realized during the inauguration by museum operators M. and V., using directional and contact microphones, a cassette recorder with prerecorded tracks, and a Tascam Portastudio.
