Tania Fiaccadori presented solo exhibition Sea-Monkeys Cult at Milan’s Dimora Artica which opened March 7 and is running to April 7.
As if ‘part of an alien cult’, the installation reflects on “the concept of survival (Nachleben) in relation to the symbolic power of objects and images and their eternal return through history.”
Drawing on magical instruments of ancient Italian traditions such as salt’s “protective power and to banish the forces of evil,” or losing/throwing away teeth ‘as a sign of misfortune,’ the works re-present ritual through a contemporary lens, and where an objects meaning and function is estranged.**
