AUTO ITALIA SOUTH EAST

Saturday 9 March 2019, 6pm

 

 

Delivered in collaboration with experimental Bari-based gallery space 63rd-77th STEPS and conceived by Fabio Santacroce as a restaging of the original project presented at FUTURA Prague in 2018, this new presentation at Auto Italia incorporates an integrated audio-video installation by Santacroce with text contributions from Zoe Darling, Ella Du Cane, Michail Novotny, Jakob Rockenschaub, Natalya Serkova, SKKI, Romina Shama, Isabella Mongelli and Edin Zenun.

These texts will elaborate on the work and retort to the title of the project as a prompt to engage with its inherent nihilism and irreversibility — materialising as personal interpretations dealing with notions of sentimentality, pop culture, idiosyncrasy, celebrations, irreversibility and hierarchies of power. Engaging with middlebrow aesthetics—some of these will be presented in the form of prints and decorations to be integrated into the main installation, and others will be read and performed during the evening by Zoe Darling, Ella Du Cane, Isabella Mongelli and Fabio Santacroce.
