Particolare by Giovanni Anselmo is currently exhibiting at the Marian Goodman Gallery in Paris. Two projectors project the word Particolare — one toward the wall and one toward the crowd, where exhibit attendees will meet the bright light. The additional pieces in the exhibition are directional. The hand indicates a direction to the spectator, while the other pieces such as “North” and “East” offer specific directional instructions. The magnetic needles embedded in granite is entitled “Direction.”
“Realize that reality can be understood as the sum of its individual components, but never captured in its infinite totality” is the essential message of Particolare.
