Circus is an itinerant campsite, an urban stage, a wanderer party, an Aladdin’s lamp, a city lighthouse. Circus is a temporary collective installation, which lasts for one day only. Circus is a tour started in 2003 in Imola. It has been performed in: Mestre/Venice (2004), Palermo (2007), Vitry/Paris (2012) and Thessaloniki Biennale (2013). In 2018, after eleven years, it came back to Palermo. It consists of a large market tent and 250 little mirrors with colourful plastic frames, hanged with raffia cords. In each corner of the space, four cars are parked with their headlights switched on and four truck batteries are connected to them. The mirrors reflect the surrounding architecture, light hits the transparent surfaces of the looking glasses like a contemporary disco-ball, creating the dreamlike atmosphere of a Fellini’s movie. A DJ booth is set up near the installation, providing the soundtrack. This is a non-elitist performance where architecture and mankind converge in a democratic way. It represents a never-equal public space linked to the city, its variations are influenced by life and time.
