“Invisible Cities” is taken from the fantasy novel of the same name (Le città invisibili) by Italo Calvino, in which Marco Polo describes to Kublai Khan, the amazing cities he has observed and heard about upon his travels. People have always conceived visions of the ideal society, and architecture and cities may be described as tangible manifestations of this; yet the same time, there is always the possibility of both falling into ruin as time goes by. Moreover in our post-internet age, they are starting to be generated in network form, going beyond the visible.
This exhibition takes the works of Lee Bul, Jagannath Panda and Kurokawa Kisho, and through them makes some fascinating observations on works of architecture and urban environments that exemplify this trend.
