“We live our lives in the belief that the world is growing ever smaller. We eat vegetables from New Zealand, communicate in real time with people in Buenos Aires and Capetown, fly to New York for the weekend, and print books in China. We no longer have a feeling for real distances anymore. Our western world is plugged in 24 hours a day. Looking out of a jumbo jet, we see mountains and steppes, fields and villages passing by, 11 kilometers below us. Families live in each little building, and vehicles full of people move along the streets. Each of these people lives an individual life; each has a certain view of the landscape and a history. A dizzying thought. One closes one’s eyes; the sheer dimension of the idea is too immense. How does our world look in actuality? How does one cross the planet’s largest landmass? What kinds of images are the ones that make it back home? How does it feel to travel 15,000 kilometers by land, instead of taking the shortcut via the jet stream or fiber-optic cables?” (Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs)

“All these images, these sounds…”
These are the opening words of the first personal exhibition of Jonas Mekas (Biržai, 1922) at APALAZZOGALLERY.
Over the past several years, technical innovations have created a pivotal shift in the way we produce, distribute, and see art. One must face, whether one wants to or not, dramatically greater volumes of visual information, reducing de facto the amount of time dedicated to each visual object and creating in the specific field of contemporary art what the critic David Joselit defines as a form of “super-velocity”. One needs to go quickly through as many physical or virtual spaces as possible to see as many works as possible. In this context of fast art consumption and the search for quick fixes, Philippe Parreno’s research in the redefinition of the exhibition format comes at a key point—not only because he pushes art institutions as far as they can go in terms of bound- aries, but essentially because he builds, designs, and thus materializes the very evanescent notion of time, offering a fierce resistance to everything described here above. When visiting “Hypothesis“, his first anthological exhibition in Italy, curated by Andrea Lissoni, it is impossible to enter, get a glimpse of the show, mentally record one or two strong images, and leave. And that is precisely Parreno’s tour de force: the rehabilitation of the visitor as an active subject capable of attention— as an acutely aware, vigilant presence in a given space where both instantaneity and memory are required to undergo a durational experience.
