SafeDepos.it begins where the art market circuit is supposed to close – everyday thousands and thousands of artworks move out from galleries and museums into the isolated world of vaults, bank deposits, archival cabinets, and free ports in order to be finally and definitely owned, stored possessed and…protected.

 

Forget about white walls, neon lights and the voices of distracted viewers busy taking selfies at the opening. Now it’s time for wooden cases piled in lodges, 55% humidity, 21degrees Celsius, metal boxes and order. Here is where we store ideas or what ideas have become – Precious private intellectual trophies, secrets, unrevealed Coca Cola recipes. Here is where white cube politics become currencies, real and tangible automated cultures. Vaults and deposits keep art-objects free – not only from their own suppositions but from the distracted outside world, not only from taxes and stains, but from your own desire as well.

 

With SafeDepos.it we decided to use a bank box as a symbol and gallery space. We want to focus on the visual and narrative potential of such environment in order to enlighten the characteristics of a specific and peculiar space in relation to its content and context.

 

We work in an extremely restricted space – originally intended to store, not to display things – where the experience of fruition is translated from the physical perimeter of the vault into the intangible areas of the net where all our actions will be documented. SafeDepos.it is therefore a paradox – it locks the classic format of exhibition out from the collective physical experience introducing it into a more private, almost inaccessible, sphere while simultaneously making it globally accessible via Internet.
