The world that I dream is a solo exhibition by Luca Galofaro curated by Abdelkader Damani that will be open to the public from Tuesday 17 May to Wednesday 20 July 2022. This will be the second event in the exhibition programme ‘The Archive Project’ curated by CAMPO.
The world that I dream presents a reflection on the nature of architecture in relation to the abstract action of montage – as a method of defining the possibilities open to the architect’s gaze – and the role of archives as a design medium.
The exhibition is a collection of different types of images, some untouched, others desecrated, which are transformed into models and give shape to an idea of the world: each architect defines their own vision through a recomposition of the signs and forms they have collected over time. This collection of fragments is stored in the memory of each person. The project is the result of an unconscious montage. Archives play an essential role in developing the work that contributes to the constitution of architecture; on the one hand, they make it possible to preserve the memory, and on the other they contribute to creating a vision. Galofaro rewrites the narratives of the past as part of what Abdelkader Damani defines as a mnemonic utopia, or Metopia, in that it introduces new narrative montages, thus freeing itself from all previously codified forms.
