The Age of Exile / 2023

Metal and bird spikes
180 × 900 × 30 cm

“When did the age of exile begin? Years ago, decades ago, centuries ago? (...) The Age of Exile is the age of a drama in which we too are implicated, each and every one of us,” writes Jacopo Crivelli Visconti in the text that accompanies Lagomarsino’s exhibition. Creating the phrase, The Age of Exile with bird spikes, a material designed to prevent birds from roosting, the sculpture becomes both a mourning monument and a fence. A border that splits the gallery space in two.
