An excerpt from Bianchi’s statement regarding the exhibition:

In each project I try to identify some of the specific features of the place where I will exhibit my work. I see it as an opportunity to experiment with my sensibility, formal interests and artistic practice in relation to some intriguing new external factor. I am fascinated by how long things last in the world, how we take care of objects and what we decide to preserve: I see it as a wish to slow down time.
