Extract

“[…] An artistic operation always manifests the symptoms of the needs and motivations, which generated it. When these are transcended in the decontextualization of the primary function of the devices with which the artworks are made, the latters can be read differently and give unexpected answers to questions that apparently are impossible. This is what happened when reading two opposing projects for conception and objectives, but whose common denominator lies in the use, in and for different reasons, of surveillance devices, software and hardware. “There’s no pictures in latent space, just secret misunderstandings” by #GuidoSegni […] and “Self Portrait from Surveillance Camera” by #IreneFenara […] Placed in parallel dialogue and questioned, transcending their initial motivations, both projects show the complementarity of their answers to the question, from which this project takes its title: do #surveillancedevices also have #poeticideals? […]”

It was very stimulating to design for spaces other than conventional exhibition spaces and to try to do it instead for spaces such as the paper pages and the online digital pages of a magazine, declining the contents of the project, therefore the works of the two artists, in two different ways. What you will find on paper is only a version of the works in dialogue with each other, as well as what you see online and both sides are independent, but at the same time complementary for the reading of the works.
