Taking the passing of time as the theme to his installation, Italian artist Davide D’Elia transformed a Roman gallery into a light blue ship hull. The name and reference to the installation were taken from the ‘antivegetativa’ — an anti-fouling paint used above all on ships and boats to avoid the deterioration of the hull, caused by the growth of sea plants and animals on, such as algae, coral and mold.
