Pump Up the JamJacopo Candotti
Curated by: Jacopo Candotti
During Langer Samstag 2013, Galleriaarrivada will sponsor an event that proposes a reflection on the role of image in today's world through research that investigates the sculptural object's relationship with time and therefore the Kantian concept of pure imagery, the idea that “the pure image of all objects of sense in general, is time”.
Through the works of Jacopo Candotti and the contributions of artists Alberto Scodro and Serena Osti, as well as curator Denis Isaia and mediator Martina Oberprantacher, the sculptures will be on display 'in motion' and will undergo changes in form and content in continuous redefinition for a period of twelve hours.
Though the works will be performed, the audience will have a chance to encounter a new way of looking at and experiencing the works through mediation that is open to dialogue and able to create unique opportunities for debate, thus resolving the problems that the exhibition curated by Candotti wants to highlight.
The task of profiling the metamorphosis and the construction of meaning in continuous self-definition of these elusive sculptures will be up to Piedmont curator Denis Isaia, who will transcribe a record of the entire performance in real time and generate a new historical trace of an unprecedented authorial interpretation.
