Projections at CLOSING SOON


Artists: Luca Bolognesi, Anna Valeria Borsari, Maria Friberg, Nassia Kalamakis, Orestis Mavroudis , Bruno Muzzolini, John Smith, Fani Zguro


Projections is a series of screenings exploring the unexpected unfolding of minimal and fragmented narratives. The selected works use a plain yet evocative language and merge diverse generations, origins and styles. Each day of the screening two videos are screened simultaneously. Presenting the eight videos in pairs aims to highlight the reciprocal influence they have on understanding the other, in addition to the relationship between the works and the viewer. The pairing responds to their complementary functions, both in terms of form and content, as an attempt to reveal the impact of associations and manipulations in the perceptual process. Projections investigates the discomforting aspects of the act of seeing and being seen, ultimately focusing on the contradiction between what we see and what the I/eye wants to see.


Screening period: 20.01.2022-23.01.2022, 19:00-22:00
