INSTALLATION_"Only the direction is real, the goal is always fictitious"  wrote the Austrian author and dramatist Arthur Schnitzler. So, for this time, we can follow advice and appreciate the newsworthy urban installation in Bari, Italy. 

Bari Art Gallery Doppelgaenger coordinated by Fausta Bolettieri presents SUD, public art project by artist Daniela Corbascio. Due to its nature of public art the project, patronized by Provincia di Bari, is generated by a mindful observation on the urban contest and follows a typical mode of presentation and fruition of art, capable of penetrating the city social fabric. 

The SUD art piece gets his genesis in 2004 as a 130 meters neon installation destined to appear on the apulian chief town's seaside's breakwaters, over the course of the years the artist has fractioned her art piece in three installations 2,5 meters each long, placed in different sites of the city.

The three installations gain a suggestive function as signposts, escorting the users on a journey to the south. The project goal is to bring contemporary art on the urban territory gaining a closer relation with the public while giving the ambient a new identity. So, the SUD art piece starts from Bari: a starting point for an ambitious project of migration in Italy and abroad.
