This aged really well | Chapter 3: Forge those sidechains
Look at time passing by! ⌛ Just an instant ago we were opening Chapter 1 of the first NFT group show in Romania and here we are, inviting you at Chapter 3: Forge those sidechains!
But time as both an empowering and a weakening force is the central standpoint in the curatorial concept, the arch-concept to interrogate the becomings of art works: in their materiality and digitality.
As time passes, displayed works are purposely obscured to make room for their digital counterparts.
For the 2nd chapter, Alexandru Zaharia, Lucian Hrisav and Albert Kaan decided to stage this game of hide & seek in the lower floor of the gallery, tingling a theoretical backbone that traces to
“𝘝𝘪𝘴𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘮𝘰𝘣𝘪𝘭𝘦, 𝘮𝘺 𝘣𝘰𝘥𝘺 𝘪𝘴 𝘢 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘮𝘰𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴; 𝘪𝘵'𝘴 𝘤𝘢𝘶𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘧𝘢𝘣𝘳𝘪𝘤 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘥, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘪𝘵𝘴 𝘤𝘰𝘩𝘦𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘰𝘧 𝘢 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨. 𝘉𝘶𝘵, 𝘣𝘦𝘤𝘢𝘶𝘴𝘦 𝘪𝘵 𝘮𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘴 𝘪𝘵𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘴𝘦𝘦𝘴, 𝘪𝘵 𝘩𝘰𝘭𝘥𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴 𝘪𝘯 𝘢 𝘤𝘪𝘳𝘤𝘭𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥 𝘪𝘵𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧.” ― Maurice Merleau-Ponty, The Eye and The Mind
What will we be able to see displayed this Thursday, what might we touch and what else could we find when scanning the QR codes?
Join us for the opening of Chapter 3 | Forge those sidechains and discover how well have the works been aging 🤷
Starting 6 PM till 10 PM, let yourself be welcomed by our friendly crypto jockeys and come see the new states of the works, an interplay between digitality and materiality. Flashy, intricate, opaque or transparent, these composite works will function as palimpsests of their own becomings through either pixel perfect videography or, the opposite, digital discomforting noise.
