On the exhibition

Riccardo Giacconi — Sipario
September 28 – November 4, 2022

The curtains of a puppet theater, an enigmatic monologue, interspersed with poetic passages yet laden with violence, a performer who lends this text her voice, scenic depictions on a monitor, a puppet that has evidently fallen victim to a fire: According to artist Riccardo Giacconi, the exhibition Sipario at Kunstraum Lakeside is “a hypothesis of a puppet show”. By compiling the very means needed for such a stage play in the space, he leaves it to these narrative elements and to the audience to evoke the drama, its protagonists, and their backgrounds.
