Fiamma Montezemolo’s Project Space exhibition comprises four distinct projects, each exploring modes of existence between self and others. All are developed originally for what the artist calls a “collaborative solo,” in partnership or with contributions from others. The first project centers on a scale model of architect Jeremy Bentham’s Panopticon, fabricated with José Parral. In the second installation, Montezemolo presents a story inspired by the myth of Ariadne, created by writer Rebecca Solnit and Montezemolo’s son, Sami Elhaik, told through animation and live action video. The third project, a video work featuring several anthropologists, looks at the relation between art and anthropology. The final work includes a site-specific installation made from materials culled from the US–Mexico border, created in collaboration with Tijuana artist Alejandro Zacarias.
