The exhibition presents works by Italian and Israeli artists that explore the concept of the room, a space that has become particularly relevant in the last two years. The works explore the connection between two expressions of the self: the personal space, on the one hand, and personality, on the other. The title of the exhibition, Voyage around My Room, was inspired by Xavier de Maistre’s renowned novel Voyage around My Room, in which the author presents his belief that one can find happiness without leaving his room. All one needs, according to de Maistre, are books, works of art, and especially ideas to fill one’s head. The space of the room is revealed as an infinite world in which man realizes his true freedom.
