sette stagioni dello spirito - controracconto is a film by Gian Maria Tosatti documenting a project he carried out from 2013 to 2016, which encompassed the entire city of Naples, Italy. Tosatti used Naples as a stage for interventions that were in the form of environmental installations -- a site could look as if it was untouched, and abandoned by humans, while in fact it was entirely constructed by the artist. A surreal twist would typically be incorporated into the setting: several rooms in a hallway will look exactly the same, but differ slightly, creating an underlying tension within the viewers’ unconsciousness. Through this project, Tosatti redefined the relationship between art and community. The artwork was integrated into the city in an almost unnoticed way, unconsciously affecting the people of Naples as they were going about their everyday life.

Tosatti’s film is presented as part of the Workspace 2016 exhibition series, featuring the work of LES Studio Program artist-in-residents.
