Giancarlo Norese Lost in Beijing

October 15, 2011

“I will go lose myself, and wander up and down to view the city.”Antipholus of Syracuse in Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors.

From mid September to mid November 2011 Giancarlo Norese (Italian artist) is getting lost in Beijing. As  resident artist at Red Gate Gallery he started his investigation of the public realm and mistaken landscapes sharing with his fellow artists an apology of colonialism, a kind of message in a bottle posted on Youtube and in Picasa. Above a streetview of the Central Chinese Television CCTV Headquarters designed by Rem Koolhaas/OMA. Below a copy of the artist’s mock sculptures.

    Another genious hit by Giancarlo Norese. I hope by getting lost he will still find the way back home, or should we already print “Please help! Who has seen this italian artist?” posters?

      Well, Beijing might be a very difficult place to find your way back home, but I am sure he will materialize again somewhere else

    …….ora che hai preso tutte queste immagini, comincia a pensare come mai molti di noi che sono qui da anni sono diventati “addicted” a tutto ciò.
