SITES and ROOTS is a title that clearly refers to the theme of identity. The source of such an approach for the international exhibition at the NEON Gallery is precisely places, whose diversity turns out to be important not only in the context of the different origins of the artists taking part in the event. Sometimes they emphasise their belonging to places that are in fact phantasmagorias or spaces with specific parameters and location on the map, but through a kind of mythologisation, their character remains close to unreal.

The context of the places where the protagonists of our exhibition the artists meet from time to time and where their paths cross cannot be overlooked either. These places, specially marked, are imbued with a special energy.


The world is getting smaller and smaller, travel and relocation are becoming commonplace and easy. Migration, too, although often associated with misfortune and the need to flee, is nowadays a subject of constant comment, ingrained in the public consciousness. Let us not forget, however, these peregrinations, so essential to all imagination, which, by making reality extremely colourful and ambiguous, transport us to other dimensions – places where we are just as eager to put down roots.
