EXHIBITION PROGRAMME

Hall, Wing

Curator: Luigi Fassi

Italian anthropologist Ernesto de Martino´s concept of "the crisis of presence" describes the individual´s experience in the face of events that undermine the foundations of identity.
The ”Crisis of Presence” exhibition examines this theme through the work of fourteen international contemporary artists.

The crisis of presence as postulated by de Martino in 1948 appears today as an incisive analysis by virtue of its capacity to describe the various forms of latent crisis that are affecting numerous aspects of the contemporary world, particularly within a social and political context.

The “Crisis of Presence” exhibition serves as an interpretative model for a thematic analysis built around the works of fourteen artists active in the European, African, and American environments. The events linked to European colonial history and their effect on migratory fluxes both past and present, the legacy of Real Socialism politics, the burgeoning influence of Asian capitalism on countries of the Third World as well as the economic and political crisis and the concurrent global rise of authoritarian right-wing politics, these are some of the main themes addressed by the exhibiting artists.

WASTE NO. 3
Jan Ijäs
[30.08.2016 - 02.10.2016]

STAIRCASE

Boom is an independent episode from a series of seven films entitled Waste. Boom was shot in Kittilä in northern Finland, in a "lunar landscape" on top of a hill where the Finnish armed forces annually disposes of expired explosives. Calculations show that detonation is the least expensive method of disposal.
During a week­long camp a total of 1.2 million kg of explosives are destroyed. The explosion safety area is seven kilometres. The explosion produces a mushroom cloud that reaches up to the lowers clouds and creates a crater about ten metres deep and thirty metres across. In the video, army representatives talk about "a hole three majors deep".
