Back again after the success of last year, The Bay Window Project continues to be an opportunity for young and established artists to create a site-specific work in uncommon settings. Beyond the white-cube display, the artwork forcefully enters the private sphere of a flat to be seen by an extemporaneous, unaware public. The aim is to map the evolution of site-specific art in a non-institutional environment.
The first 2011 artist invited to exhibit in The Bay Window, project curated by sybin, is DAVIDE D’ELIA.

As Davide observes, “the light in which we live conditions our mood, our perception of things and our domestic rites. The light we project outside through windows, be it warm or cold, reveals the DNA of our modus vivendi. Our micro-domestic world relates with the outside by transmitting signals, both territorial and individual, to passers by who can decide to receive, or ignore, such signals.” Playing around with the few elements available to him – a plant, a table with elements on it, old vertical blinds and bits and pieces of ordinary life’s accumulation, he created Tropical Aryballoi, a two-faced container that changes at the change of light, revealing itself only to the most diligent of spectator. Tropical Aryballoi is a living still life, always the same but in fact ever-changing.
