“Why do Italians always bump into cars while parallel parking?” Elmgreen & Dragset ponder the question in Italian Centimeters, to which the answer is: clearly because Italians have their own concept of the centimetre and are indifferent to the standard decimal metric system. What is a measure if not a convention, one of the countless taxonomies we use to give order to the chaos of the world we inhabit? So in reality, this seemingly simple and ironic object thinly veils yet another subversion by this artistic duo, who deal with topics such as stereotypes, mass culture and the relationship between human beings and social spaces in surprising ways. Arbitrarily redefining the centimetre becomes an act of rebellion, reminding us how the limits of conventions should never replace the reality they measure.
