Grasso is a review where everything fits into one space measuring three by two meters. Six square meters of ideas, images, and stories that two artists have chosen to stamp on a surface that demands a commitment, an effort, to be seen and understood: stretch out on it, hang onto it, climb up on it. Grasso is nature, life, shelter, freedom. It’s not cynicism, it’s whimsy.
