Epicenters revolves around the "concept of natural order and its exact opposite." Curator Fabio Carnaghi uses the motif of the earthquake, as it "reveals the atavistic conflict between the exception to the rules of nature and an inexplicable-complex order."
The exhibition is located at the archaeological site of Terme di Como Romana, which recent studies indicate traces of an earthquake that resulted in a structural collapse. Through Epicenters, Terme di Como Romana becomes the location of a 'collective representation' by the artists, who are each responding to these themes in their individual, artistic styles. "The result is a temporary settlement, an opportunity to regenerate the space by a subjective, nomadic or accidental act."
