Pier Paolo Pasolini & Carlos Reyes
ORGANISED BY ALESSANDRO BAVA. OPENING MAY 1ST 2015, 6-9PM.
EXHIBITION RUNS UNTIL SATURDAY 27TH JUNE. GALLERY OPEN THU-SAT 12-5PM.
For the exhibition pindul’s rewards, Carlos Reyes has been working with the Centro Studi Pier Paolo Pasolini in Casarsa, Italy. In dialogue with posters and collages produced by Pasolini in his 20s, Reyes has re-calibrated the historical documents by separating their content from their substrate. The texts, often written in a mostly forgotten dialect will be re-performed in the exhibition space, as take-away posters and projections onto organic matter. While their message implicates a relationship with the future, a teleological alchemy between a science fiction poster and a space age material invented as a liquid rocket fuel, allude to Pasolini’s political and artistic legacy vis a vis the flagrant actualization of many of his warnings regarding the struggle for common good and the contradictions of intolerance and globalism.
