We are immersed in a reality that is constantly transforming: new technologies and the relationship between digital and individual create a universe in which the subject must constantly adapt and change to the surroundings in order to understand the world and express itself. 'Transformers', the book which accompanies an exhibition at the MAXXI in Rome, fits into this logic. Through their work, four artists from four different countries express their views on contemporary mutability. Choi Jeong Hwa, Martino Gamper, Pedro Reyes and Didier Fiuza Faustino are, in some way, “transformers”: weapons become musical instruments, chairs are made from handmade fabrics.
