Comunicato stampa

Il Colorificio presents “If You Believed In Me”, Tamara MacArthur's first solo show in Italy.
MacArthur builds architectural spaces that speak her own language, precarious environments that protect and amplify her, shelters that at the same time she has to defend. These constructions, handcrafted with poor materials such as paper or foil, are homes she temporarily inhabits, for the duration of the performance, theatre-nests which give her the security to sing and to address the public

Quite often MacArthur’s architectures incorporate oversized drawings of women, exploded self-portraits of the artist who seems to call on her multiples for backup in order to divide the effort. MacArthur’s environments become representations of herself, places where the artist stands, downsized, a fundamental caryatid carrying the weight of her exhibition and gift.


Il Colorificio is a project-space based in the district of Giambellino, founded by Michele Bertolino, Bernardo Follini, Giulia Gregnanin. Located in a converted paint shop, the gallery is devoted to art and curation that calls into question the nature of reality. Il Colorificio is open every Saturday and Sunday from 15 to 19 and by appointment.
