Gennariello (part II)

curated by Daniele Balice

with Farah Al-Qasimi, Henni Alftan, Alex Ayed, Jonathan Binet, Camille Blatrix, Dennis Cooper, Isabelle Cornaro, Enzo Cucchi, Simone Fattal, Owen Fu, Mario Giacomelli, Rafik Greiss, Hongyan, Shelby Jackson, Thomas Jeppe, Kayode Ojo, Shabahang Tayyari

 

The inspiration for the group show at Balice Hertling is the work of Pier Paolo Pasolini, but particularly the topics raised in his 1975 text Gennariello: the pedagogical influence of objects (“the discourse of things”) and their linguistic power, intellectuals’ cynical acceptation of history, the conformism of modern society, and the irreversible damages provoked by progress. It is the second show inspired by this text that takes place at Balice Hertling; the first one was held in 2009 in the gallery’s very first space at 65 rue Rébeval.

L’inspiration de l’exposition collective chez Balice Hertling est le travail de Pier Paolo Pasolini, mais surtout les sujets soulevés dans son texte de 1975 Gennariello: l’influence pédagogique des objets («le discours des choses») et leur pouvoir linguistique, l’acceptation cynique de l’histoire par les intellectuels, le conformisme de la société moderne et les dommages irréversibles provoqués par le progrès. C’est la deuxième exposition inspirée de ce texte qui se déroule chez Balice Hertling; la première a eu lieu en 2009 dans le tout premier espace de la galerie au 65 rue Rébeval.
