A project by Guido Yannitto
SB34 – The pool welcomes 'Something that always escapes' by Guido Yannitto (Arg. 1981). Exploring popular cultures is one of his major interest. He´s been working with tapestries and considering this medium´s possibilities, thinking about the sculptural aspects of this planimetric technique and also interested in what he sees as major characteristics within this representational system, aspects of communication and translation. Ideas like identity, dissolve identity, oral transmission, translation, genealogy, subjectivity and collective work are the conceptual axis for his exchanges with weavers.
This exhibition is the third episode of The plot is in the process of writing, a cycle of exhibitions thought out by Nicolas de Ribou for SB34 – The Pool on narrative, writing, history, between fiction and reality, where it is a matter of activating persona’s, characters that question our relation with the world and invite us to deconstruct the imposed images by creating others, more singular.
