DESCRIPTION

In RARE PLUS, Eugenio Percossi presents an installation entitled Black and White as an entry ticket to a world where reality fades into illusion and truth into imagination. The black and white room, with an atmosphere and scenery reminiscent of the 1930s, is so authentic that one has the impression it has always been there.  Everything from the furniture, wall decoration, and bed to the accessories and flowers is executed in grisaille, as if old, frozen, and forgotten.  Percossi's room is empty, but full and furnished in every detail, with unreality and illusion blending with nostalgia and memories.
