Many works in the exhibition exist as evidence of the occurrence of ideas or narratives that ask to be unfolded. While being fully accomplished actualities, they point at or involve the staging of their own making, attempting to preserve the openness and complexity of their conceptual gestation. A sense of openness also seems to be the result of a sort of reverberation travelling from the work to the viewer, who is asked to draw a number of connections between the object encountered and its surrounding discourse, its formal references, the actions it solicits or it is an index of and, in some cases, its textual component.
