Dello Scompiglio (Italy) – Levi van Veluw: Sanctum
Associazione Culturale Dello Scompiglio (Vorno, Italy) received a Grant International Presentations from the Mondriaan Fund, in support of the presentation of an installation by Levi van Veluw. The installation, entitled Sanctum, was developed especially for Dello Scompiglio, and testifies of a fictitious religious conviction, engaging all the senses of the visitor. Van Veluw is focused on the visitor and wants to examine whether he, as an artist, is capable of provoking a convincing spiritual experience in the visitor.
The installation is situated in an underground 300-sq-m white cube below Dello Scompiglio. More than 1,000 pillars, 5,000 litres of water and 2,000 kilograms of charcoal were used.
Sanctum is on view from 27 April until 22 September.
