7-8pm

As part of SIT|EV, over three days Alex Cecchetti directly summons three different 'exhibitions’ where new configurations of works and installations are created from the invisible. Cecchetti describes the work as ‘a multiple experience of serendipity and simultaneity that tries to reply to one single question: do invisible things see visible things?’

Unfolding through techniques of rhetoric, dance and collaboration, each day the different elements of the exhibition are reconfigured to produce different stories. Although not essential, spectators are invited to attend each day to gain the most from the experience.
