INAUGURATION: Wednesday 4 at 20:00
“Fauna and urban landscape” is a set of mute portraits, common places and inert objects that make up this world of small and insignificant things that build a city.
The city itself, without a name, any of them, like a giant city in which thousands of beings, objects, everyday situations come together that have no importance at all. Or they have it all. The transcendent inconsequential. Nothing happens but nothing stops happening.
This project is born of observation, curiosity, hours sitting in a subway car, a bus, in the queue of a supermarket, or on a bench in front of an ATM. It is born of the need to find someone / something to dialogue with in a place where people seem to be crossing their gaze, their eyes fixed on the front, on a screen or they are simply elusive. What appears sad becomes comic and vice versa. And then you burst out laughing in the middle of the street. And a stranger looks at you out of the corner of his eye. And you go forward. And he continues forward.
The city clothes us, we feel protected, we touch home. The city is home to a place full of strangers.
The city is, after all, a cluster of all these things. Common objects. Common faces. Common landscapes.
Fauna and urban landscape is a handful of those little pieces of everyday life, faces in the dark, hours of waiting, those little corners that you never stop to look at, those things that if the world suddenly stopped, they would be half done.+info
