It’s Not What You Think transforms Il Salotto into an abandoned, underground boiler room with tubes crisscrossing the space. Industrial metal tubes of various sizes dominate the space, re-directing visitors’ movements as they must step over, bend under, or walk around the tubes in order to navigate the site.
Aesthetically, the installation draws on early Minimalist works by artists such as Michael Asher and Charlotte Posenenske, creating a bodily reference with the means of simple architectural elements.
