First edition

Live in the house and it will not fall down is a gallery of fragments, a collection of memories, the story of one and more people, of a house, of a city. Compiled by Italian artists and recipients of the first Lewis Baltz Research Fund, Alessandro Laita and Chiaralice Rizzi, the book was built from an archive of images collected over four decades by the late Venetian artist Bruno Rizzi, who died in 2004. Spending long days in the artist’s Venice studio, Laita and Rizzi intervened in the delicate geology that underlies such piles of papers, postcards and photographs sedimented over the years. Set free from their previous binds and rebound in a new order, the images serve as traces of the artist's life in sync with the gentle currents of the floating city.

Chiaralice Rizzi (b. 1982) and Alessandro Laita (b. 1979) studied Visual Arts at the Istituto Universitario di Architettura in Venice. Between 2010 and 2015, they worked as teaching assistants to Lewis Baltz and Adrian Paci. Their artistic practice develops around the thematic of landscape, memory and representation. Lewis Baltz participated in editing their project Live in the house and it will not fall down.
