Ludovica Carbotta’s multifaceted art practice encompasses sculpture, drawing, performance, architecture, and writing. She is interested in the physical exploration of urban space, constructing what she calls “fictional site specificity”; she invents imaginary places or imbues real places with fictional contexts, recovering the role of imagination as a way of constructing knowledge. Over the past years, she has been working on a large-scale project, divided into several chapters, entitled Monowe, the name of an imaginary city inhabited by a single person. Through the point of view and experiences of Monowe’s only inhabitant and his/her possible acceptance of the city’s conditions, Carbotta explores seclusion as a state through which to abandon social norms, rules, and logics that have been taken for granted in society.
