About the show
"Nightmare" is a gif inspired by the homonymous artwork by Dalì. The
gif shows the circular motion of ants that obsessively walk the walls
of the WAG. Ants represent an omen of death and remind us of the
precariousness of the human being. The red light follows the ants
emphasizing the anxious and recursive aspect of perpetual movement.
Alessia Mutti is a student of the Fine Arts Academy of Rome, where she
is getting the B.A. degree in multimedia art & technologies.
About the WAG
Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born
in 2008 as OSX Widget and launched as WebApp in 2009! The Widget Art
Gallery is a single art-gallery-room fitting into people's pockets.
Every two months, the WAG hosts a solo digital-art exhibition related
to its dynamic site-specific context.
The WAG works both as a kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and
also as a museum conserving all the past shows inside an online
archive as a dynamic permanent collection. WebApp:
