Always available the osx-dashboard version at http://www.chiarapassa.it/TheWidgetArtGallery.html  Enjoy the show!

Have a nice summer!
Best rregards, Chiara Passa


About the SHOW

Binga asked me to make swinging from the ceiling of the WAG her caged head – icon of deprived liberty, she is fed through the bars by a male hand offering her an almond seed: symbol of the species’ survival. Binga is reusing for the WAG her caged head - that was the core in the performance she made in 1974 - to question the woman's freedom today in relation to new media. Tomaso Binga is a poet, among the best-known Italian exponent of sound poetry and performance art.

About the WAG

Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born on 2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room fitting into people's pocket. Every month, the WAG hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific context. So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an online archive that creates a permanent collection.
