Fondazione Prada presents “Whether Line”, the new exhibition project conceived by the American artists Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin: a multimedia installation which epresents the first output of a creative process begun in late 2016, investigating the perpetual promise of “new terrain”.

Conceived for the Podium, the Deposito and the external courtyard of Fondazione Prada’s Milan complex, the show – presented as an haunted map -, is staged as an immersive intervention where visitors navigate surrounded by constellation of permanent built, where aural and visual echoes of nature and daily life merge with distortions of familiar spaces such as amusement parks, homesteads, and fortifications. The artists contort these sites through dislocations of time and memory to explore the notion of borders and boundaries—existential, psychosocial, and physical.

The exhibition is completed with a movie retrospective to be screened at Fondazione Prada’s Cinema.

From 6 April to 6 August 2019
