Giancarlo Norese Lost in Beijing
“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.
