La legge è relativa per tutti (The law is relative for everyone) is the title of the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo’s exhibition in Turin, curated by Anna Colin and Elena Sorokina. Lupo Burtscher created the exhibition design and developed a booklet for the project Hotel Africa by formazero within the show.
The title La legge è relativa per tutti can be found in the Palazzo Re Rebaudengo in Guarene sewn to the wall with a fragile red thread. This thread runs through all the rooms of the exhibition, encircling the capitalised and high positioned labels of the works, linking them together. A small library located on legs of gold, also designed by Lupo Burtscher, invites you to enter more deeply into the themes of the works on display.
The booklet Hotel Africa tells of the occupation and eviction from the ex-warehouses of Tiburtina, Rome, of Sudanese, Eritrean and Ethiopian refugees. The Rome collective formazero works on this story within its project euphonia. Three chapters, graphically separated by different page widths and two different types of paper, gather the different voices of those directly or indirectly involved in Tiburtina. The fragmentary photographic material sensitively approaches the location from a certain distance.
