Stefano Cagol: The Body of Energy (of the Mind)

Stefano Cagol (born 1969) used his VISIT grant to embark upon an expedition through Europe from Norway to Gibraltar, searching for signs of both physical and cultural energy – an expedition that provokes reflection on things not visible to the eye, on resources and relationships. During his travels, Stefano Cagol used an infrared camera to follow the trails of energy in the places he visited. He met with countless people en route, formed connections with the characteristic architecture of his destinations and got to know the minute details of his local environment. The list of institutions that exhibited his project between October 2014 and March 2015 include the Bergen Kunsthall Landmark, Bergen (NO), Museo MA*GA, Gallarate (IT), Museum Folkwang, Essen (DE), Listen to the Sirenes, Gibraltar (UK), Madre, Naples (IT), MAXXI, Rome (IT), Museion, Bolzano (IT), Kunst Halle St. Gallen (CH), ZKM, Karlsruhe (DE) and the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, Venice (IT). ‘The Body of Energy (of the Mind)’ was also turned into a 256-page book published by Revolver Publishing Berlin.
