Tali Serruya y Ibai Hernandorena, “Cada vez son más los artistas que sueñan con hacerse ricos y que pueden enriquecerse. Es aquí donde la caída comienza”, 2017. 10 posteres, 70 x 100 cm.
The work “Cada vez son más los artistas que sueñan con hacerse ricos y que pueden enriquecerse. Es aquí donde la caída comienza” its formed by pieces of the same phrase and the declined image in a pop aesthetic of the same brick. The piece questions the relationship between quantity and quality, visibility and profitability, as the production and reproduction concept. The vertical image of the brick fixes the dizziness hanging, the moment before the fall.
Enea Palmeto, “Hi Ricky Fitts”, 2017. Plastic bags dispenser for artists. Help yourself. – It was one of those days when it’s a minute away from snowing and there’s this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. Right? And this bag was just dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. That’s the day I realized that there was this entire life behind things, and this incredibly benevolent force that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video’s a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember… I need to remember… Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world, I feel like I can’t take it, and my heart is just going to cave in – Ricky Fitts – American Beauty (1999).
