A Friend

The installation of Ibrahim Mahama at Porta Venezia

Porta Venezia toll gates
Piazza Guglielmo Oberdan, 4

From Tuesday 2 to Sunday 14 April 2019, the Nicola Trussardi Foundation presents A Friend, an imposing installation conceived for the two toll gates of Porta Venezia by the Ghanaian artist Ibrahim Mahama. The installation is realized on the occasion of the Art Week, and will remain visible even for the entire duration of the Design Week.

 

The Porta Venezia toll gates will be wrapped with jute sacks that will give the buildings a new identity, leading viewers to look at them no longer as mere monuments, but in light of their historical origin and their symbolic function.

Porta Venezia is one of the six main gates of the city walls, and A Friend wants to trigger a reflection on the very concept of "threshold", that place of passage that defines the inside and the outside, the self and the other, the friend and the enemy.
