Nobody home… is a group exhibition curated by Gigiotto del Vecchio at APALAZZO Gallery in Brescia, including works by Charlie Billingham, Giulio Delvè, Douglas Gordon, Natalie Häusler, Christina Mackie, Pentti Monkkonen and Niels Trannois.

Intrusion has never been contemplated. The door was already open and the history of the place revealed itself through signs, smells, evocations.

We got into the apartment at the first floor of the palace and decided to occupy a place that seemed to be empty…we didn’t feel an unpleasant atmosphere, it was more as a weak recall to another intervention and decoration process arriving from the apartment, a need that the place seemed to have since its very first conception. Beauty doesn’t invade but accompanies, in a journey through cultural placements, ideological choices, aesthetic guidelines.

Nobody’s in or maybe there’s somebody in the other room, behind a glass that seems a mirror to us, curious to see what’s going to happend behind it…
