Curated by Placentia Arte in collaboration with #girlsinmuseum
"Cannibalization of affective relationships, emotional objects in freefall, and technologies of care are the subjects explored in BitCoins Love. The exhibition will last just for one night, and it will take place in the rooms of a karaoke house.
BitCoins Love presents works and performances by Italian artists Mara Oscar Cassiani, Elisa Giardina Papa and Kamilia Kard, and in the foyer of KTV the work of six international artists: Cybertwee, Faith Holland, Tavi Lee, Helin Sahin, Miyö Van Stenis, and Szonja Szendi. The exhibition stems from the encounter of these nine artists, that often happened online and led to a constant discussion on the construction of gender, bodies, and intimacy in the scenario of advanced technocapitalism. During the three hours of the exhibition, the artists will present works in progress that intentionally leave room for the contamination of each other art practice, but also with the very place where the works are installed: a rented karaoke house. The artworks, loaded directly on the karaoke’s screens, are constantly interrupted by song lyrics. BitCoins Love presents artworks that can be contemplated and observed, but also sung and cannibalized." (Placentia Arte)
