Nelson, Michael (2019) L'Atteso. Mantua, Italy : Corraini Edizioni. 76p. ISBN 9788875707606


Catalogue for Nelson's exhibition at OGR, Turin, 2 November 2018 - 3 February 2019. L'Atteso transformed the OGR into a "different place" thanks to a large-scale installation that occupied the entire hall of Binario 1 with a powerful intervention: dimly lit, a vast floor was made from the rubble from crushed buildings. Dusty cars emitted a sense of abandonment but appeared to offer no explanation. The memories of their previous owners, both real and constructed were conjured through the patina of these banal objects mixed with the occasional intervention and manipulation of lighting. The immersive nature of this work evoked a spatial and temporal suspension that encouraged thoughts of the existential.
