Paolo Mele

I’m glad to announce this upcoming project.

EXHIBITION ON A TABLE

April 30th 2017

Ā Solo show by Carlos Casas, curated by Paolo Mele.

A project by Arthub Asia

The artist today is a researcher: he collects any kind of data (video, audio, text, objects, etc.) and, through his works; he offers a personal interpretation of the reality. The method used to collect and remediate those kinds of materials represents the architecture of the new artistic practice.

Fieldworks are the architecture of the work of Carlos Casas: a series of free, anti-narrative notes in which the artist takes the time to plunge his gaze into the meaning of the place, of the landscape, without drawing on the need for the definition of a complete story.

RAMDOM ASSOCIATIONĀ is calling for research-based artists to take part in a 7-day group investigation aimed at ideas related to extreme lands and remote areas. Situated at the southern tip of east Italy on the Mediterranean, Gagliano del Capo poses as an ideal location for participants of theĀ DEFAULT 17 ResidencyĀ to contribute to an investigation of the extreme land. The project will investigate geographic dislocation as a socio-anthropological characteristic embedded in extreme territories. It confronts challenges, particularly relating to climate and environmental conditions, as a means to explore diverse interpretations of human and natural landscapes.
