These new works are the logical extension of her recent Ports and Ships project, also on display: photos of the behemoth cargo ships and city-like ports of a global economy of consumption operating at levels beyond the system limits of our natural world.
In "Internal Resistance", pictured at the top of this post, invisible forces all around us (such as gravity) seem to be given shape in a room-wide installation that both imposes itself upon our movements and vibrates systemically to our slightest touch.
A brief video containing interviews (in English) with the two artists and an overview of the show may be found at the Galleria Michaela Rizzo website: http://www.galleriamichelarizzo.net/
