We are immersed in a reality that is constantly transforming: new technologies and the relationship between the digital and the 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, a book accompanying an exhibition of the same name 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.
