Break-in. Temporal displacement, curated by Arnold
Braho, from an original idea by The Address, is a
reference to a double time-lag: on one hand the need
for a breach into the spaces of the gallery by the artistic
scene, on the other hand the symptom of an arrhythmia,
which is constantly looking to match the rhythm of
memory, of nature, as the dissent and the escape from
an institutional system that seems to be paralyzed.

What seems clear from the start, within
this time-lag, is the ongoing effort by the practices of
the artistic subject on display, at the reliance on devices
able to assess the memory and provide emblematic
counter-models. The sabotage of tools of violence like
weapons and pitfalls, the refusal of time itself in its 24/7
shape, highlighting the psychologic symptomatology;
otherwise proposing maps and images that are rooted
in the pursuit of a guidance, through natural elements
and storylines, practices bend to abandoned traditions
which have lost every symbolic significance.

Therefore, if there’s no time common to different places,
there’s not even a unique time in a single space. And
if the time itself does not depend upon where we’re
located, nor from the proximity of the masses, it does
depend upon the rhythm in which we move in a certain
time and place. A subjective rhythm which inevitably
must come to grips with a historical, aesthetical, social
and political inflexibility. Since the change can create the
essence of an era, it is not given nor could be anticipated
or delayed. It can only be formed through certain values
that constitute a historical awareness of the subject,
a conscience, albeit negative and productive, able to
form the critical centre of society, able to express the
possibility of a real antagonism towards it.
