Salon Suisse 2018 – Exploration 4 : «Lantern for fire flies»

Under the title “Lantern for fire flies”, Salonnière Laura Tinti presents a combination of lecture and light installation. In her exploration, we abandoned the immutable and protected scenography of the historic city centre to get to know an interstitial area of the mainland that is full of life. A site-inspired lighted installation, a prototype of a new possible scenario, was initiated at sunset.

By using an ideal connection between Venice and Zurich, the formal reality of the red light district in Zurich-Alstetten and the spontaneous streetwalkers’ patch of Via Fratelli Bandiera will be compared. Social experiments, creations of urban spaces dedicated and created in an ad hoc manner, as well as customary rules of the Italian territory were all discussed.
