In her work, Amalia Pica constantly looks into communication and its failures in the present time; she explores the different ways in which we convey our ideas and relate to one another based on them.
With this premise as a basis, she developed Asamble, a participative performance in which a heterogeneous group of people gather in a square carrying chairs. This event suggests an attempt to voluntarily congregate in a circular assembly that never closes.
Attendants can observe and draw their own conclusions, a kind of visual essay on forms of collective decision-making. The work invites people to reflect upon exercising citizenship in a democracy.
