Art Installation – dried Mushrooms spawn a political dialogue

July 25, 2014


LaserCut Works was able to help translate old texts directly onto the mushroom surface. Due to the uneven surface the focal length between lens and material was in constant flux which gave Carlos Reyes control over legible and blurred passages.

Text on mushroom

For the exhibition pindul’s rewards, Carlos Reyes has been working with the Centro Studi Pier Paolo Pasolini in Casarsa, Italy. In dialogue with the posters and collages produced by Pasolini in his 20s, Reyes has re-calibrated the historical documents by separating their content from their substrate. The texts, often written in a mostly forgotten dialect will be re-performed in the exhibition space, as take-away posters and projections onto organic matter. While their message implicates a relationship with the future, a teleological alchemy between a science fiction poster and a space age material invented as a liquid rocket fuel, allude to Pasolini‚Äôs political and artistic legacy vis a vis the flagrant actualization of many of his warnings regarding the struggle for common good and the contradictions of intolerance and globalism.
