2012 – Keyes or lockpicks? – Iron sheet and keyes
Keyes or lockpicks?
On one of the metal sheets which was used to lock the apartments which were under seizure in a lower-class neighborhood, now reoccupied, some keys will be hung. These keys will, if rubbed one against each other or struck, emit a sound vibration similar to the eco which remains in dreams.
It can happen to any of us to forget, in a drawer, keys which we no longer use simply because they no longer open anything. This is an attempt to deny their original value and to reattribute a value which is more tied to imagination.
Which “doors”, in your desires, would you wish to open with these keys?
I would like for each one of you to bring keys and an answer to this query, writing your own thoughts.
I am presenting photographic documentation of the answers which were left by the inhabitants of Piazza Prealpi (Milan), during an initiative brought forth by the neighborhood in June 2012.
