ROSSELLA BISCOTTI, POSITIONS #3, VAN ABBEMUSEUM, EINDHOVEN - UNTIL MARCH 12

Rossella Biscotti won the Premio Michelangelo in 2010.
The prize, a big marble block from the Carrara quarry in Italy, is used as the starting point for The Journey (2016).

With the prospect of dropping the marble block into the Mediterranean Sea between Italy, Libya and Tunisia she identified the blocks new location through analyzing the environmental complexity of the Sicilian canal near Lampadusa.

Inspired by scientific research and oceanography, the installation consists of maps that trace historical commercial routes, migrant routes, artefacts and military deposit, analyzing the morphology of the seabed in international waters.

The second new work in Positions #3 is called Clara (2016), an installation around the rhinoceros, who became famous during 17 years of touring Europe in the mid-18th century and was transported to Europe by the VOC.

Positions #3 presents new and existing work by Rossella Biscotti, Duncan Campbell, Maryam Jafri and Natasja Kensmil and is on view untill March 12th at van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven
