Clémence de La Tour du Pin opens up a fortress for the first time since 1705 to explore fetish + impurity, Oct 26 -Nov 29

, 25 October 2017

Clémence de La Tour du Pin is presenting solo exhibition sept préludes at Torino’s Pastiss Underground Fortress, opening October 26 and running to November 29.

Curated by Treti Galaxie in collaboration with Museo Pietro Micca, the work will be displayed underground in the tunnels and combat rooms of the old space. Described by La Tour du Pin as a “labyrinthine network of tunnels as intrauterine architecture, [comparable] to the unconscious side of the city of Torino – with its forgotten souls, desires and hidden phobias,” it will be open to the public for the first time since 1705.

Through a non-linear narrative tour that includes sensory and fictional elements to immerse the audience in a psychogeographical exploration, the artist will explore fetishism and the concept of shadows and impurities through the preservation of the space.
