Bureau

“Bureau” is an exhibition / curatorial project that sees the physical space interact with PHROOM MAGAZINE.
Taking advantage of the company’s offices, the project plans to change the photographic images in the working space every two months, thus reconfiguring the environment and arranging the works for an unusual use.
The inclusion of a piece of work inside a space, disposed in a structural relationship different from the one that usually qualifies as work of art, becomes a curious opportunity to place selected artworks in relation to the aesthetics promoted by the culture of work, and a way to repeat, changing interpretation, the coexistence and collaboration of different realities / identities within a space.

“Bureau” è un progetto espositivo/curatoriale che vede lo spazio interagire con PHROOM MAGAZINE.
Usufruendo di spazi adibiti ad uffici il progetto prevede di cambiare con cadenza bimestrale le immagini fotografiche negli spazi della società riconfigurando in tal modo l’ambiente e disponendo le opere ad una fruizione inusuale.
L’inserimento di un opera all’interno di uno spazio configurato da un rapporto strutturale differente da quello in cui si è solito fruire di un opera d’arte, diviene un curioso pretesto per mettere le opere selezionate in relazione con le estetiche promosse dalla cultura del lavoro, e un modo per ripetere, declinando diversamente la lettura, la compresenza e collaborazione di diverse realtà/identità nello spazio.

“Untitled” (Theodore’s Knife)

 
Theodore’s hand grips the knife.
Laying back down on his bed.
Theodore loves to fall in love.
Theodore also loves to listen.
 
An impressionist postcard taped to his wall in blur.
Before he got the new mattress from Drew.
We are so vulnerable in bed.
We are at the mercy of the blade of life.
