(chrome) is a sensory installation, designed with a perfumer, that diffuses the odor of paint sprayed by the aerosol bombs used in graffiti art. This material setup is accompanied by a decor entirely covered in chrome, the noble color in graffiti culture. The silver-colored walls combined with the fruity scent of the acrylic spray, transform the exhibition space. (chrome) offers a visual and olfactory experience that places an illegal activity in a seemingly unrelated context. The installation adopts the coldness and precision of minimalism, associating it indirectly with unauthorized street vandalism. (chrome) is a nostalgic and introductory work that returns to the first medium used by Gusto Zagg in adolescence, a period of nocturnal explorations and performances.
