About the WAG

Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born on 2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room fitting into people's pocket. Every month, the WAG hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific context. So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an online archive that creates a permanent collection.

About the show

"Flashcrash Unlimited" by Fabio Lattanzi Antinori.

The artwork is the condensed representation of the last few minutes of the US stock exchange prior to the infamous flashcrash of May 6 2010. The looped animation stands as an ironic reminder of the thousands yet smaller flash crashes that have made their appearance on the financial market; its rough two-dimensional aesthetic, in stark contrast with the pristine realistic background of the WAG white cube where it is displayed, is reminiscent of the flat world of Big Data and algorithmic trading.

Fabio Lattanzi Antinori is an italian artist based and working in London. His work mixing a range of mediums, as: sculpture, print and interactive installations, examines the language of power and control of corporate systems and its effect on the belief systems of the individual.
