Arthur Duff – “Learning how to see in the dark”

CONTEMPO_Duff-7Giugno-Taranto-ph.Silvestro Simeone (1)


Arthur Duff realises a site-specific installation, entitled Learning how to see in the dark, at the Castello Aragonese of Taranto for Medimex. The artist has been invited by Contempo, the contemporary art project of Valentina Iacovelli, to create a work for the 2018 edition of the International Festival & Music Conference promoted by Puglia Sounds.

In the installation the texts – a characteristic element of Duff’s works – will be used as images: they will be projected as short sentences (often single words) and will involve the public in a direct communication. The castle will become the main character, a place of exploration in which the public is invited to reconsider the place in which it is located.


Starts: 7 June 2018
Ends: 10 June 2018
