GOLD _ Room #0
03.03.2023 – 10.09.2023
In addition to the exhibition ‘100 Shades of White. A Colour in Fashion’, the installation ‘GOLD _ Zimmer #0’ by artist Alessandra Beltrame is on show in the Textilmuseum lounge.
In the installation ‘GOLD _ Room #0’ conceived specially for the Textilmuseum St. Gallen, artist Alessandra Beltrame sounds out the demarcation lines between the habitual and outrageous. She wraps everyday objects in gold leather, playing with the viewer’s perception. New socio-political connections arise in this way. The artist thus weaves a path of translation, as she herself describes it, ‘whereby perception is shifted to a point beyond the safe delineation of the habitual, so as to enable during the act of viewing the formulation of a different interpretation, of an apparent reality.’
Alessandra Beltrame lives and works in St. Gallen and Venice.
