This Russian artist’s first exhibition in Italy marks the completion of a project which he realized for the Collection during a period of residence in Reggio Emilia. Antufiev makes constant use of a variety of objects and materials that show no immediate relationship to one another, but which fuse with one another within his installations and find themselves transformed: they come to be involved in a ritual process that’s reminiscent of alchemy. The project is accompanied by an artist’s book.

Conceived specifically for the former factory of Max Mara fashion company, now housing the Maramotti Collection, the large installation "Are We Still Going On?" by Kaarina Kaikkonen follows and accompanies the compositional structure of the building, an interesting example of brutalist and organicist architecture from the 1950’s. The artwork is composed of two symmetrical structures evoking the skeleton of a large boat.
