TEXT > The audience doesn’t exist anymore: where you want, when you want
Il Selfi-Influenced, il pubblico non esiste.
2017 is, according to the New York Times e non solo, the best year in human history. Never, as in the contemporary age, all over the world, there are signs of well-being and democracy so high. While modern states only carry “floating policies”, the only “political space” for a change (if we really need it) is our private, micro and local dimension.
The problem is no longer express ourself, we do it too much.
Il problema non è trovare un modo affinché le persone possano esprimersi, lo fanno fin troppo. Bisogna piuttosto trovare interstizi di solitudine e silenzio affinché loro possano dire finalmente qualcosa di vero.
The artist, commonly defined, must inevitably take a step backwards. On the other hand, the public no longer exists: in selfie there is a significant coincidence of artwork, author and (first) spectator.
Democracy, with the tips of left hand fingers
various material, Quirinale 2017.
Really the “museum” is “where you want and whenever you want. The art piece you see is installed at the Quirinale, it’s not in Rome, but it’s always where you are and when you want. The art piece only lives in your private, lonely and silent dimension.
At the moment we look at this art piece, we are forced into a “nomadic motionless”: art piece and spectator are “very fast” because always in the same place and at the same time. And, at the same time, “motionless”.
It is possible to store and collect the memory of a moment. We are full of objects, I am tired of objects. Exposing objects in 2017 implies that the artist takes important responsibilities that are usually not met. (Luca Rossi)
The sculpture that you see in your private dimension is born from the tips fingers of left hand. There has never been such a thing in the art history. Like painting on the cave, by the tactile mouse of Apple. Our private dimension is like our cave.
The nature of contemporaneity lives a fibrillation between object, direct experience, imagination and mediated experience.
