For the beginning of the season Kunst Meran Merano Arte is presenting three solo shows, one on each floor of the museum, under the title Da lontano era un’isola (From afar it was an island). The title is from a book by Bruno Munari in which the Italian artist and designer describes hidden worlds that can through closer observation be discovered in the structures of stones. Investigation of their own working materials, experimentation with these and a requirement that the public should repeatedly question its own perception can all be seen as common themes of the three artists represented. In their approach to the particularieties and structures of the exhibition spaces, Katinka Bock (1976 in Frankfurt am Main, lives in Paris), Giulia Cenci (1988 Cortona, lives in Amsterdam) and Philipp Messner (*1975 in Bolzano, lives in Munich) permit a new island to be discovered on each floor.
