On the occasion of the exhibition TOTEM curated by Serena Tabacchi (September 14th – October 21st, 2023), BUILDING hosts a guided tour of the exhibition with the artist Alessandro Pongan.


The exhibition explores the transition between magic and the divine through a selection of sculptures, tapestries and native digital works, in which the dialogue between the symbolism of the body, and the evolution of contemporary society aims at rediscovering the value of the sacred.


The artist will guide visitors through the exhibition. He will introduce the artworks exhibited, which  represent the result of the his research that interprets the sacredness of objects and forms, starting with a personal and historical examination of the cult of divinity. TOTEM is rooted in the intimacy of the individual: through the use of recurring symbols and forms, it tries to describe the human desire to know infinity.
