Opening 25 November, 6:30 pm
Recontemporary, in collaboration with the Museo Del Cinema and the Turin Film Festival, presents: FLATFORM – Films and works 2008-2019.
A conversation with the duo of Italian artists on the Flatform. For them, moving images are a medium that perfectly matches the poetics of Flatform. That is to say, it is the most exhaustive possible means of an artistic research aimed at detecting the non-exhaustive. In other words, moving images interest them for their possibility of allowing the Real to emerge by composing and decomposing reality.
