Movement Patterns explores the meeting between the body and the monument, the fragile and the eternal, movement and stillness, history and memory. In her artistic practice, Chiara Bugatti examines materials that seems to have lost their main function. Through three works of sculpture, installation and video, she explores the memory of materials, their historical associations and narrative possibilities, such as allowing marble to break down to then re-emerge in perishable room installations, or possibly eternal forms. The works goes into dialogue with the premises of Mint they now engage in, in the house of ABF (Workers' Educational Association), located in neighborhoods colored by Swedish political and cultural history.
