Tomorrow was so different, so appealing, 2018, Sobering, Paris
Yesterday´s tomorrow is not today, so maybe today´s tomorrow won’t be quite what you expected. J.G. Ballard
“Tomorrow was so different, so appealing” triggers the view into a future paradoxically envisioning the past. The show comprises paintings and objects resembling artifacts of a past avant-garde. The works can be seen as afterimages incorporating the opposite of the perfect moment, pregnant with potentialities as they reveal in retrospect what this epiphanic moment had in “prospect”. Yet these artifacts do not merely signal decay but also a certain imaginative perspectivism in its hopeful and tragic dimension.
