Please join us for the book launch and reading of
Beyond Imagination / A Zona de Crepúsculo by Pablo Pijnappel
at ELGARAFI BOM DIA
Linienstr. 158, 10115 Berlin
Friday 28 February, 7 pm
This book was published on the occasion of the artist’s solo exhibition, Zona de Crepúsculo, at the Iberê Camargo Foundation, Brazil, in 2018, curated by Bernardo José de Souza. The following texts are a rendering, in written form, of monologues included in his performance The Zone, 2015-2018. The artwork consists of an after-hours tour in and around a given exhibition space, where a series of found narratives are performed by the artist.
With psychoanalysis and literature as his usual starting points, Pablo Pijnappel’s works are meta-narratives that poetically combine cultural, historical and ancestral identities through the prism of memory. Language always plays a leading role in uniting mental mechanisms and the world, in video installations, texts, or performances that lie at the crossroads between cinema, photography, and fragments of prose.
A special poster edition by the author (photo taken by Andrew de Freitas) will be available.
€65, edition of 50
