Title

Esser Spazio

Description

The project was submitted to the commission for the International Competition SPAZIO/MAXXI due percento, published in October 2008, for the creation of two works of art for the MAXXI Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Rome: one had to be designed for the atrium of the museum and another one for the outdoor areas. 
The light work Esser Spazio had to be placed outside the MAXXI Museum, integrating the architectural environment with discretion and inhabiting the final steps of the square above the entrance to the museum. Uberti, coherent with its artistic research which often aims at drawing symbolic shapes and signs on the architectural and urban public space – sometimes with effects of displacement, sometimes to emphasize the characteristics and peculiarities of the place - in this case suggested a sentence, a motto and at the same time a call, asking the public to actively participate in the construction of the museum: then reflecting on the meaning of this new space for contemporary art, on its role in respect to the culture, but also on the shape of the city itself. The project was submitted to the commission for the International Competition SPAZIO/MAXXI due percento, published in October 2008 by the Provveditorato interregionale per le opere pubbliche per il Lazio, l’Abruzzo e la Sardegna, in agreement with the PARC Direzione generale per la qualità e la tutela del paesaggio, l’architettura e l’arte contemporanee.
The work didn't win the competition.
