Antivegetativa by Davide D Elia

London-based artist Davide D’Elia fully immerses viewers in Tiffany Blue for his installation “Antivegetativa” at Ex Elettronfonica Gallery in Rome. The interior of the gallery is transformed into a ship hull, and covered with ‘anti-fouling’ paint, a specialized coating applied to the hull of ships to fight the growth of harmful organisms. The paintings on the walls were found in Rome flea markets, antique shops and junkyards and then covered with the tiffany blue paint. See select shots of D’Elia’s unique and immersive installation below.
