In Prima Persona Plural is an exhibition conceived as a film set in which the works act as characters capable of activating different stories within the same scenario. A space made up of a complex set of elements – works of art, music, artefacts, masks, reflecting surfaces, performers – which in their association transport the visitor into an alternative dimension.
In Prima Persona Plural is the first collective organized in the large room of the Solo/Multi section of the MACRO programming, placing itself as a further exploration of the exhibition medium in an experimental key. The exhibition is in fact conceived as a synesthetic and disorienting experience, which takes shape from the works of artists of different generations and backgrounds, eluding any thematic and temporal classification, to rather destabilize the boundaries and definitions of the human, the non-human and of the post-human: a space where notions of reality and fiction are tickled, overturned and distorted. A deposit of gestures, signs and emotions, typical of a recent past but characterized by a certain abstraction, which resonate conceptually and physically in the present.
In addition to the works, during the exhibition a series of characters and objects, as if they were apparitions, some static, others in motion, will act freely within the exhibition space. These include a Michael Jackson impersonator, a series of street painters and performers invited to wear masks. A composite of seemingly familiar and harmless elements, yet aimed at suggesting a profoundly uncanny experience of reality, as if to induce a reflection on the enigmatic cognitive and emotional conditions characteristic of our time.
