"Physically, the threshold itself can be perceived initially as a solid, geometric shape, made of tangible shiny surfaces, that dissolve into thousands of individual threads the instant the visitor crosses through. The shape of the work is drawn from the form of a curtain, relating to the collective memory of old grocery shops, Southern Italy ground floor interiors and the background of a stage show. The visitor, crossing the entrance could instantly reconstruct a scenario made of sudden revelations, food smells, domestic interiors and the expectation for a show that is about to begin."
