In We Won’t Share The Shelter Gabriele Spalluto introduces a different approach in his practice.
The centre of the work is the temporary asylum centre of Rancate (Ticino), that was obtained after the reconversion of a former storage facility.
After having tried, but without success, to gain permission to film inside the facility, the artist contacted and interviewed three people that used to work at the centre during their civil protection service. How does the perception of a place change when not being able to see it?
How can one describe a place only by using words?
Three people tell their personal experience of a place that wasn’t conceived to wellcome people.
