Crazy - Madness in Contemporary Art

Sissi "Fuori dal buio dell'armadio" with her "Archivio addosso"

Maggiore g.a.m. is pleased to announce the site-specific art installation "Fuori dal buio dell'armadio" made by Sissi at Chiostro del Bramante in Rome for the group exhibition "Crazy - La follia nell'arte contemporanea" curated by Danilo Eccher on view from 19 Februaury 2022 to 08 January 2023.


The artwork has been made putting together 180 dresses which are part of a working progress work called "Archivio addosso" created by Sissi and worn during her everyday life and available at Maggiore g.a.m.



21 international artists, more than 11 new site-specific installations: for the first time the works of art will invade the interior and exterior spaces of the Chiostro del Bramante in Rome. 


Carlos Amorales, Hrafnhildur Arnardòttir / Shoplifter, Massimo Bartolini, Gianni Colombo, Petah Coyne, Ian Davenport, Janet Echelman, Fallen Fruit / David Allen Burns and Austin Young, Lucio Fontana, Anne Hardy, Thomas Hirschhorn, Alfredo Jaar, Alfredo Pirri, Gianni Politi, Tobias Rehberger, Anri Sala, Yinka Shonibare, Sissi, Max Streicher, Pascale Marthine Tayou, Sun Yuan & Peng Yu.


Madness, like art, refuses established patterns, escapes from any rigid framework, rebels against constraints, so also does Crazy, the project from Dart – Chiostro del Bramante, curated by Danilo Eccher. No ordinary and predictable path in favor of a creative explosion capable of expanding, like Ian Davenport’s pigment flowing on the stairs, and of modifying the spatial perception, like Gianni Colombo’senvironment (1970). A violent shockwave that invades every accessible room, mixing and ensuring strong expressive leaps between the works, from the neon of Alfredo Jaar, also visible from the outside, to the totally immersive colors of Fallen Fruit / David Allen Burns and Austin Young. A complex, subjective, oblique narration; an inclusive and participatory atmosphere; a distribution of artworks and isolated and autonomous spaces in all available places, even invading those usually excluded from the museum pathway.
