About the show

"Nightmare” by Alessia Mutti. July 9 - September 10 2021

"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 on 2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room fitting into people's pocket (suitable for all mobile platforms). Every month, the WAG hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific context. So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an online archive that creates a permanent collection.
