B#SIDE WAR PROJECT

The video work No,No,No will be exhibited in the B#Side War Project in Treviso, Italy from 8 December 2017 to 29 January 2018. This iteration, the first of three cycles in the B#Side War Project, focuses on the concept of Impermanence.
Impermanence accompanies the visitor through a suggestive narrative, dedicated to the concepts of memory linked to war experience and inherent loss of identity: http://www.bsidewar.org/en/upcoming/impermanence-exhibition/
