Udine, Italy

The non-profit association art ex dono and ULTRA space are pleased to announce the solo exhibition of Marcin Ramocki, curated by Chiara Moro. The exhibition will be opened on November 17th at 6.30pm at the ULTRA space Piazzetta Valentinis, 5 Udine Italy and it will be open until January 26th, 2013 from Wednesday to Saturday from 2.30pm to 7.30pm or by appointment.

The video entitled "/BODY", bring us to a dramatic atmosphere of endless ending and beginning, thanks to the construction and de-construction of the letters which form the “body” word itself. The installation entitled “Jewelry for Network Administrators”, collaboration with the artist and designer Sakurako Shimizu, is the re-materializing of a technological poetics into an object of beauty and value, as the jewel is, because made of silver. The exhibition of a selection of ten animated GIF, selected among those posted on website, is related to technological adaptation of the sensations of the body and it will operate through the use of old Apple computer models from the collection of Roberto Russo.

I am kinda torn about this one... on one hand we should support main stream art writers who approach the clandestine territory of post-new-media fallout, on the other, the semiotic square thing has serious problems. For me the issues here begin before specific examples of what kind of work fits where... "Art" and "Social Media", even as BD defines them, are not compatible categories which could become binary oppositions. Any semioticians out there on Rhizome?

BTW: "wrinkled fruits of inferior understanding" is a masterful description;)


The East is coming!

Check these out as well... The article is in Polish only, but the demo videos r pretty cool!
