The Pastificio Cerere Foundation presents LOSING CONTROL, Giulio Bensasson's first solo show curated by Francesca Ceccherini, which extends along the spaces of the silos and the basement of the mill, both obtained from the recovery of the ancient Pastificio Cerere.
The project is realized thanks to the contribution of the Lazio Contemporaneo public notice and will be open to the public by reservation from Thursday 6 May to Friday 30 July 2021.
LOSING CONTROL consists of two site-specific installations resulting from a research initiated by the artist in 2019, dedicated to the theme of loss of control and the phenomena that this originates. Every context of human life - from the social and political one to the educational and religious one - is characterized by the search for control, an element at the basis of the generation of borders, real or imaginary, and of the manifestation of phenomena such as obsession and illusion. , which make the existing in its spontaneous condition illegible or distorted.
Between the two opposing floors where the exhibition spaces of the Pastificio Cerere Foundation are located and the two LOSING CONTROL installations, the results originating from the loss of control are at stake. If in Losing Control # 1 we reveal those psychotic mechanisms typical of Western society linked to the obsessive desire to control, due to which individuals tend to erase all traces of transience from their existence, in Losing Control # 2 the loss of control, here under the domination of time, it becomes a generative process that simultaneously destroys and creates, cancels and composes new landscapes of meaning.
The exhibition project will be accompanied by the publication of a website dedicated to the exhibition and a volume published by DITO Publishing, with critical contributions by Francesca Ceccherini, Marinella Paderni, Alfredo Pirri, Stefano Velotti and illustrated by an extensive iconographic documentation of the works presented.
