Immersive Sound Installation: Museo Villa Borghese

The Factum by Maria Nitulescu

Daring House worked with artist Maria Nitulescu to create a site-specific installation that transfigures the museum space, through sound, light and scent.

The exhibition, The Factum – A reality of space and time, curated by Niccolò Lucarelli and promoted by Roma Culture, Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali, haas been on display at the Museo Pietro Canonica a Villa Borghese in Rome, from May 5th to June 20th, 2021.

Through the synthesis of light, sound and scent, together with Pietro Canonica’s sculptures, a visual, physical and philosophical experience arises and poses fascinating questions to the visitors: How real are our memories of the past and how do they impact our contemporary reality? Is reality made only from the present moment? And as Paul Watzlawick would ask, “how real is real?”
