    Frutta is thrilled to host a project organized and curated by CURA.

    Through rapid synapse, irony and ease of access to an open-source turbo image archive the production of an emerging generation of international artists converges towards the construction of a new imaginery, in which – quotes and outcomes of the past being digested, and new frontiers of communication, information technology, internet, and the aesthetics of swirling hypermarkets and immediate consumption channels being mastered – outline an archeology of the future, focusing on gargantuan assimilation and the giving back of the ongoing virtual or physical change. A product of such a mutation, art seems to no longer have a form, or to have many. Teleportation, dematerialization and re-materialization. Bodies and objects disembodied, reduced from molecules to pixels, from substance to image. Video, painting, films, sculpture, installation codes and formulas are exchanged in a common primordial soup into which the image streams which cross the current everyday life end up, producing new form, a new place and a new time.

    A project curated by CURA.
    from an idea by Ilaria Marotta

    Participating artists: Mark Barrow, Ian Cheng, Nicolas Deshayes, Dexter Sinister, David Douard, Haris Epaminonda and Daniel Gustav Cramer, Camille Henrot, Andrea Kvas, Margaret Lee, Jimmy Limit, Billy Rennekamp, Torben Ribe, Timur Si-Qin and Gundam Air.

     

    * Simultaneously, we will present Bada al sense e i suoni baderanno a se stessi, a solo exhibition by Alessandro Sarra, at Hadrian – our project space.
