MyBellamy - Solo Outdoor Exhibition
Amsterdam, June 16 - August 12 2020
Sprung as reaction from the cancellation of a gallery show due to the pandemic outbreak, Daniele Scauso's outdoor exhibition MyBellamy has been the result of a collective effort between the artist and the community of the Bellamystraat, the street in Amsterdam where his studio is located.
"It has been fantastic to see so much enthusiasm and collaborative support from the people I approached asking to use their houses for exhibiting my work publicly. Deeply, I guess everyone liked very much the idea to act collectively into turning a problem into an opportunity. I believe there was a strong the need for that".
For two months the Bellamystraat became an open-air gallery, open 24/7 with the sculptures hanging like jewelry from the characteristic buildings' ijsbalken (roof-hooks) and behind windows for residents and passers-by to enjoy.
