There is no place like home

 - There is no place like home
Twenty-nine artists invest a forgotten building site in Roma during 72 consecutive hours without any institutional oversight.
There is no place like home documents the eponymous, self-managed exhibition project (initiated by Stanislao Di Giugno, Giuseppe Pietroniro, Marco Raparelli, and Alessandro Cicoria) that took place in Rome in an abandoned building on the Aurelia Antica in September 2014. A collective of twenty-nine artists lived in and transformed the building over the course of 72 hours. Here, between the site-specific works, there have alternated events, performances, and unexpected encounters. Thus conceived, the artistic action emerges as a force that acts in space but, above all, in time: a site that never ceases to be under construction, a subversive act against the exhibition canons of art. Without walls and without doors, with only one supporting structure, this hybrid place remains open to any form of “meeting,” metaphor for a project that will build over time.
