|Description: Strolling through the exhibition, at first glance I couldn’t decide me for an Artwork, because there were a lot of interesting things, but later I was aware that I had more connection with the artworks where there’s no any device (I mean technological devices, like a glasses, or controls) between the work and I, because with these things I feel a lot of distance in between, that’s why I have chose a very simple but intimate artwork.It’s the work of Matthias Gommel, called 12 Movies. What I made was to place the artwork in some specific locations, and thus inquire how does it work and what happen with this piece in each context, and this way also I tried to remove it from the gallery and bring it into a real context.
I think is in the real context where this Artwork has its most and relevant capability to ponder about the masked and familiarized reality and also as a mechanism who triggers reflections about our culture, (that it is taked for granted ) and its strange and obscure modus operandi.
