„The double entrance of the exhibition bunk invites the public to choose an entry to the interior. The architecture is similar to a labyrinth whose paths lead to the centre without dead ends. Narrowness of the walls evokes discomfort and underlines the intimate ambience. D / H is about topics like voyeurism, pain, pornography, longing, and gender stereotypes. Across the two rooms, various objects show contrasting materiality and form. With the installation, Rosanna Monteleone questions the dual gender categories and associated attributes with failing attempts at their classification. The permanently opposite second room plays with the dialectic of closeness and distance, simultaneously deconstructing the mystified other and the nature of separation.“
