Trieste Contemporanea is pleased to invite you to the opening of the exhibition So you finally found us in this wasteland. Welcome! which will be held on Friday, 10 March 2023 at 6 pm at Studio Tommaseo (Trieste, via del Monte 2/1). Titled with a quotation from La Ricotta by Pier Paolo Pasolini (1963), this international group exhibition curated by Ruth Noack will present works by Mary Ellen Carrol (USA), Pauline Curnier Jardin (France), Anna Dacqué (Austria), Anna Daučíková (Slovakia), Gangart (Simonetta Ferfoglia and Heinrich Pichler, Italy/Austria) and Lucas Michael (Argentina/USA) that, following the curatorial concept of, take inspiration from Pier Paolo Pasolini's use of commons or wastelands in the city's periphery as (heterotopic) film sites on which life's drama is enacted and truth made visible.
«Must the periphery necessarily be defined in relation to a center, as a city’s Other? Or can we allow ourselves to be inspired by the likes of Pier Paolo Pasolini, who found in the periphery … yes, sex… but also, a site in which life’s drama is enacted and truth made visible?» – Ruth Noack asks, while continuing that this in Trieste «is the first of a series of “sketch exhibitions” about Eccentric Peripheries which looks at gendered and migratory bodies performing (in) peripheral sites, both, in the sense of bodies or forms that inhabit the space and space that is delineated through these inhabitations. The format uses the exhibition as a tool for evolving a theme and producing art work over a longer period of time, allowing for mutual discussion and support amongst artists and curator, and attempting a more organic approach to the means of production.»
The exhibition will run from 10 March to 5 May 2023 (free admittance; opening hours: Tue.–Fri. 5 to 8 pm).
