Curated by Carolina Lio
'What’s more human than analysing our own weaknesses and trying to overcome them? We try and do it by looking at the past, re-examining brick after brick what we have built so far, and learning from what now seems a failure - what before seemed a success - while we aspire to see all our future, potentially forever. Reaching this clarity of mind is impossible, no-one can see forever if not in a momentaneous delusion. Yet, this craving for seeing beyond is one of our most poetic aspects, a tender folly, hopeless and grand at the same time.
In this show, I wanted to put together a little journey through the impossible infinite which is inside us all, that we can imagine growing in all directions, encompassing all the space beside all the time. A clarity that leads to the darkness of the outer space, beyond it all and deeply nowhere.' (excerpt from text by Carolina Lio)
The exhibition takes place in the framework of CLICK - International Curatorial Residency, a project by Art Affairs and Documents Foundation and Goethe-Institut Bulgarien, supported by the Programme Culture of the City of Sofia. Partner: SARIEV Contemporary, Plovdiv.
