Believe It Or Not’ – with these words, Alice Pasquini brings the spectator on a voyage through a space that depicts an unexpected, impactful side of her oeuvre. A space guided by illusion on many levels, from subtle colors that emerge from the seemingly black and white color scheme to the layering of figures and phrases receding and materializing from the walls, Alice draws us into a world of surreal characters. These characters, who live their lives based on magic and illusion, transport us back to childhood, when tricks and games were taken as fantastical fact, not yet overridden by the cynicism of adulthood.

Do we believe or do we not believe? In this room we are asked to let down our guards and immerse ourselves in this dark world of Alice. Only in this interior space can the artist divulge a new aspect of her work, one that is built on constructs of mystery and apparitions that seem to pour from every surface of the space. Unbridled from the consideration of public art, the artist’s duality is on display. Moving away from the vibrant colors that define her public work, this interior setting permits the apparition of fringe characters bathed in black, calling for a return to another era, when fantasy and illusion made us believe anything was possible.
