About

before breakfast we talked about the furthest visible point before it all disappeared examines the construct of objects that are informed by a relation to space, time and materiality. According to Bruno Latour, objects exist in the axis of their networks and bring with them a sense of connectedness, or an expanded anamnesis triggered by their ambiguous qualities. Anecdotes and elective affinities between art, alchemy and history inspire an open conversation within the exhibition. Scientific dogmas and beliefs in supposed elements reinforced by philosophy or religion slowed down the discovery of certain rules of physics and chemistry. Some widely accepted hypotheses of the current age, especially regarding cosmogony, predictably also await to be refuted. Time has been extensively crucial to the research paths of objects' (pre)existence. In this framework, time is a metaphor, intangible or somehow unthinkable, almost like an assumed, although never quite proven element. The show addresses ideas around time and objects to make something visible that eludes perception, thus giving the impalpable a form. Let us in fact make a theoretical reconstruction of an imaginary object, basing our work on fragments of unknown function and uncertain origins. Whatever emerges from this we will not know exactly what or is, or what world it belongs to."
