About the WAG:
Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born
on 2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room fitting into people's pocket. Every month, the WAG hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific context.
So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an online archive that creates a permanent collection. WAG website http://www.chiarapassa.it/TheWidgetArtGallery.html
About the artwork:
"Social fever" by Miriam Pelagalli. November 7 2018 - January 8 2019.
Pelagalli’s WAG room becomes a magnified looped projection of the Instagram main screen.
The man seated in the center is the fulcrum of the scene, where everything turns around him. He looks like an indistinct shape, equal to many others and without any thickness. His silhouette is surrounded by a continuous turning of other shapes showing always the same content: an alienated kind of “social fever”.
Miriam Pelagalli is a student of the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, B.A. graduated from the multimedia art and technology department.
