I COULDN’T ENTER — Lisa Zambetta
The construction is based on the impossibility of seeing and knowing a private place.
During a walk in the mountains near Varese, the artist is captivated by the beauty of this genuine place. The desire to see through the walls becomes a way to imagine what is inside this place and “live” it intimately.
Essentially, something that doesn’t exist has been built. The imagination has its own value from the moment in which it has the ability to build from scratch and make something real.
The photography is the only sight you have of the real place and it relates to the model as the only concrete trace.
It is an imagined and desired sculpture. It was made with paper, plywood and colored sheets, decorated with colored pencils and markers, cut and glued together. The construction process comes from a childish methodology, making it also a toy.
