Paco Chanivet opens SSSSSSSilex

April 25th 2018 - La Capella

On Wednesday April 25, 2018 the artist in residence Paco Chanivet opens the individual project SSSSSSSilex, which can be seen in the Sala Petita of La Capella until Sunday July 1, 2018. The exhibition is part of the call BCN Producció 2017 -2018, a program of the Institut de Cultura of the Ajuntament de Barcelona that offers a showcase to the emerging creators of the city, as well as support to produce their works or to curate their exhibitions.

We subvive in this era of high definition and low empathy. Hiding behind the regime of transparency is the dictatorship of specular objects. Identity has fragmented into Web morphemes: filters, “I like” and other clicks. Hype is the new faith and an outdated immunological firewall transforms otherness into a World of Warcraft horde. In the floor of Silicon Valley, a bunch of fingers slides across the black waters of a frozen lake; in its depths, a twinkling charm holds the erotic energy in a Cartesian chatroom. Fear and loathing on AliExpress. Time becomes a purchase history and the predictive program pursues the accident. Porno-existentialist philosophers debate the differences between the society of the spectacle and the spectral society: “Ne vous connectez jamais” on the façade of a data centre. In the distance, the scopic lament of voices on auto-tune drowns in a quantified sea. Greenpeace protects Technogaia. The data cold war to control painstaking and poor readings. Nick Land, Nobel Peace Prize winner. Cyber-realist demonstrators attack the parapsychology industry: no to the networks of hyperconnected ghosts. Steve Jobs cargo cult. When laughter turns to a smile, the only thing left to say is “LOL”.
