DAMA LIBRE is the exhibition by Margherita Morgantin at the Galleria Internazionale d'Arte Moderna di Ca’ Pesaro in Venice that closes the project VIP = Violation of the Pauli Exclusion Principle UNDER THE MOUNTAIN, ABOVE THE MOUNTAIN, produced by Xing and realized thanks to the support of Italian Council (7th Edition 2020), a program for the promotion of Italian contemporary art in the world of the Directorate General for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture. The title of the exhibition refers to the remote detection of an energy signal compatible with dark matter, which has been involved in the DAMA (DArk MAtter) experiments at the Gran Sasso d'Italia National Laboratories for years and in various variants. In addition, the attitude of an artist resonates who makes different languages and approaches dialogue within a path of research and deep understanding of reality. At the basis of Morgantin's thinking is the need to critically investigate conventional visions and paradigms and to move freely between the various types of knowledge.
