Choregraphed Transparency

Exhibition by Santiago Taccetti and Lorenzo Sandoval.
Opening 15th of April, 19:00
15th  – 24th of April

It is mainly invisible walls made of crystal that define most of the spaces where our bureaucratic fluxes inhabit: tax offices, shopping malls, airports or banks. For a long time we have known them as non-places, they are the epitome of the architecture of transparency. These transit spaces represent in their very glass construction what is supposed to be hidden. In a way comparable to what happened with the appearance of credit cards and the ongoing disappearance of money as a physical object, today a similar process is happening with the representation of the infrastructures of power. On the transparent walls are some floating corporative logos as the customer care person is always within our sight. While one does not perceive the symmetry of power as it happened before, the architecture of transparency pushes our steps in a stealthy fashion. This transparency hides the rules of our regulated lives in its own immateriality.

In this exposed nothingness, we individuals are choreographed through the perverse management of our desire, very well described by Byung-Chul Han. In this mechanic conception of all movements, synchronized once more by an interior panopticon composed in our time by of a digital substance, it would seem that the gestures of defiance are the ones that propose a disruption in this machinery.

Title of the exhibition by Farnoosh Fathi

The exhibition contains a film from a greenhouse and a film prop of sorts. Of sorts as not having been built to be in the film, the prop is made after the shooting and based on an object in the film. Displayed under the same roof this time but separately in other occasions, both works stem from an interest in how objects gain importance and sway between their function and their worth.
