On October 29th at 7:00 pm the MACRO in Rome will screen the film screening of “Tools for Imagination” by Céline Condorelli.
Tools for Imagination is a work by Céline Condorelli produced by Ramdom (Italy) and supported by the Italian Council (8th Edition 2020) program for the promotion of Italian contemporary art in the world of the Contemporary Directorate of the Ministry of Culture.
“Tools for Imagination” intends to develop an articulated reflection on the concept of free time. Through the production of works, talks and study materials, the project highlights how the history of work (productive time) perfectly reflects the history of free time (“unproductive” time), generating a paradox about what a museum produces, an institution that, par excellence, it was born as an expression of time freed from working hours.
After the presentation of the project at the FRAC Lorraine (Metz, France) and the exhibitions held at Tenerife Espacio de Las Artes (Tenerife, Spain) and Muzeum Sztuki (Lodz, Polania), the MACRO event will be an opportunity to present in preview fragments of the film “After work” made by Condorelli with the British filmmaker Ben Rivers.
Céline Condorelli is an artist whose work fluidly crosses the languages of sculpture, architecture, design and writing in a reflection that questions the very meaning of the act of “showing”.
