‘Contro Spazio: Punti in Aria’ is a site specific installation existing in the gallery and on the streets of Venice. Consisting of eight-hundred and forty-seven perforated postcards (a number which marks the increase in the number of tourists – 847,000 – visiting the city between 2009 and 2013) as well as one hundred posters, ‘Contro Spazio’ asks viewers to reconsider tourism and their image of Venice. Visitors to the SG Gallery can view the exhibition as well as collect stickers, personalize them with their own perspective on Venice, and add them to posters installed throughout the city centre.
