Triumph at Centro Pecci until 31st March

Triumph, completed in 2009 and exhibited that same year in Frankfurt, and in 2012 at the South London Gallery in London, is a spectacular installation by Aleksandra Mir composed of 2529 trophies collected by the artist across the span of a year in Sicily, in the city of Palermo and its vicinity.

The cups in the installation, were gathered by means of an advertisement in Il Giornale di Sicilia in which the artist offered the symbolic sum of five euros for each trophy.
The outcome of the initiative is a monument to youth and bygone glories, to the culture of amateur sport and the legacy of Italian popular history.
