We got inside making our way through debris. There were a lot of pieces of things that had been whole until recently. A lot of aluminum furniture stood side by side with large, dark, wooden armoires and frosted-glass dressers with zoomorphic paws. There were disconnected hoses, very big pots and pans, and a lot of chairs and plastic tables with folding legs. Everything was carelessly piled up at the entrance, concealing almost completely a dismal reception.

Contributor Notes

Extragarbo is an artistic and curatorial platform, founded in Venice in 2019 by Est Coulon, Cosimo Ferrigolo, Gaia Ginevra Giorgi, Edoardo Lazzari, Leonardo Schifino, and Theresa Maria Schlichtherle. They produce and support the performative projects of its members. The collective has adopted a horizontal method, working as a shared system of research, imagination and desire.
