Golden Biopsy
One day Antonitta Gatti from laboratory for nano diagnostics received a call from Fabio Maniscalco's. He was sick, dying. In his biopsy samples were found very specific nanoparticles of metals in which there were traces of gold. The presence of golden nanoparticles was associated with the fact that Fabio worked on the restoration of the monastery in the areas that were bombed with depleted uranium in Bosnia and Kosovo. Depleted uranium produces a very high temperature, and the gold was melted down to the size of the nanoparticles. As it is claimed, with only one breath it enters the body and penetrates the human cell. The fact that Fabio Maniscalco found traces of it in his body, was of great importance for the understanding of his own personal tragedy, but also for the future development of nano diagnostics. Doringer golden biopsy is treated as an archaeological material that reveals the narrative of the life-long commitment and consequences of modern warfare.
Dark Materia
Faceless is a two-part exhibition that deals with the phenomenon that is present all around us. It is a kind of fashion of depersonalization, hiding persons who primarily appeared in art at the beginning of this century and has since been popular and present. The first part focused on the provocative action and experience of the hidden, masked persons (under a veil or a hood) with respect to art and fashion after the 11th of September. The second part of the exhibition focuses on the “dialog” aspect of the preferred participants- exhibitors, but also those whose work represents a commentary on the exhibition in different formats.

Presented artists at the exhibition are: Marina Abramović, Jill Magid, Jeremy Bailey, Bernd Oppl, Andrew Norman Wilson, Thorsten Brinkmann, Asger Carlsen, Shahram Entekhabi, David Haines, Ren Hang, Ute Klein, Nienke Klunder, Slava Mogutin, Mustafa Sabbagh, Jan Stradtmann, and Levi van Veluw...
