Neri&Hu’s solo exhibition Traversing Thresholds curated by Domitilla Dardi.
With Traversing Thresholds, Neri&Hu investigates and addresses the archival work of Carlo Scarpa in the MAXXI Museum. Revolving around the concept of “jian”, the exhibition presents six threshold moments, showcasing “thresholds” in architectural forms. The word “thresholds” used in the title of the exhibition has long been embedded in Neri&Hu’s architectural practice. It can be roughly translated to the Chinese notion of “jian”, which means “gap”, “space”, or “pause”. In an architectural sense, this term is often used to describe the physical mediation between two contrasting spatial environments, such as interiority and exteriority, or the public and the private.
