The artist Davide D’elia was responsible for converting the interior of the gallery Ex-Elettrofonica in a space that is painted in turquoise, however, is only half covered, while the other remains white. Davide D’elia decorated the whole gallery with antique paintings and furniture bought at a flea market with the intention that the space looked like an old boat.
The artist used a pigment, which is called Antivegetativa, Italian name given to the material used to paint the outside of the ships, protecting them from the accession of algae and living organisms.
According to Davide D’elia, this project sought to show how just by adding painting things and spaces change dramatically.
