The Book by Scintilla Robina and Norberto Dalmata “As a drop of water on a k-way”
15 x 20 cm
|In 2007, two artists, Marco Raparelli and Stefania Galegati, disguised as the curators Norberto Dalmata and Scintilla Robina, develop together the curatorial project for a show that later took place in Milan, at the Care-Of no-profit space, and in Berlin, at the Uqbar gallery.
All the emails they send each other and to the artists which they try to involve; all their comments on everyday life and art experiences; all the documents to fill; all the photos; all the gossip and the poetry; the newspaper articles; the grammar mistakes; the further preciosities… the whole everything, from the backstage of an exhibition, has been collected, cut out and taped by hand into a book, then glossed by
some real-authentic, very sarcastic, Raparellistyle drawings.Finally, two nonexistent curators achieve a real exhibition. And the book is both a bizarre patchwork-tale, and a cathartic parody of the art world.
The two curators exist now, with own characters, life and future projects.
