Scope and Content

The project series documents "Spazio Vuoto Riservato A Gianni Pettena", an installation that consists of a banner with the words "Spazio Vuoto Riservato A Gianni Pettena". The first version of the banner dates from 1973, but it was initially used for the exhibition "Contribution" in Rennes in 2008, where Pettena, one of the artists invited to carry out interventions in symbolic locations around the city, chose to install his banner inside the market.

The banner was used also in Pettena's solo exhibition at the Galerie Mercier & Associés, in Paris in 2011, and again at the Spazio MEGA in Milan, in 2017. "Pettena not only introduced the artistic intervention into an environment that was alien to it, but extended the provocation to the point of laying claim to absolute freedom for the artist." [1]

The project series contains a sign with the words "Spazio Vuoto Riservato A Gianni Pettena", possibly the sign designed in 1973, photographs of the second edition in Rennes, photographs of the third edition of the installation at the Galerie Mercier et Associés, and photographs of the fourth edition of the installation at the Spazio MEGA.
