Marcin Dudek’s site-specific installation Giochi Senza Frontiere (2018) in Palazzo Mazzarino’s courtyard, will be part of the official collateral events of Manifesta 12 in Palermo. Addressing notions of heritage and identity within the context of Palermo’s history, the installation interrogates the effects of generations of migration on a society already comprised of a complex and layered lineage. During the course of the biennial, the work will be unforeseeably altered by the arrival of each new visitor.
Giochi Senza Frontiere is on view at Palazzo Mazzarino from 15 June until 4 November 2018.
