Impossible Love is a portrait of a feeling to come, a story that speaks about the immateriality of desire and its blues.

About

An accumulation of disrupted temporalities creates the setting for an essentially performative project. Invited artists, actors, poets, musicians and performers create an utmost decadent representation of a hopelessness to be most hunted, and never possessed. An exhibition should be an organism–in essence - unnameable, like a feeling that should never cease to constitute or to escape itself: an exhibition should be a desire. In this sense, the proposed exhibition is an experience more of loss than of accumulation, facing immateriality more than gathering objects: a constant loss of its own sense, at least. Whatever its protocols, its procedures, its strategies, I understand this exhibition to be a system of desires and, in fact, a pluralist history with multiple temporalities. As curator, my role is to be its narrator, to understand its failures and tell its story. What we will create is an impossible museum, a museum not of objects but of stories. “The work [in this museum] draw whoever devotes himself to [them] towards the point where [they] undergo the ordeal of impossibility: an experience which is precisely nocturnal, which is that of the night” (Maurice Blanchot). What we will create is a fiction: we will tell the story of a feeling to come.
