“It’s Not What You Think” transforms Il Salotto into a different setting: an abandoned, underground boiler room with tubes crisscrossing the space. The artist duo continues their practice of altering art spaces by turning the white cube gallery room into a location that contrasts the discreet format in which contemporary art is normally presented.


Industrial metal tubes of various sizes dominate the space, re-directing visitors’ movements as they must step over, bend under, or walk around the tubes in order to navigate the site.
