Please answer me, GiacomQ, Via Quarenghi 48 C/D Bergamo, Italy
Please answer me is a solo show by Matteo Patelli. The exhibition focuses on how the body can become an image, an object, an element of pleasure or testimony of exchange between individuals-users.
The photographs shared during the chat with a user on Grindr are the starting point of the exhibition. They become logo, display, they occupy a furnishing element on which there is a drawing, presented more as a plastic/tactile element rather than as a representation. In the second room, the images of the chats are performed by two different devices, representing the duality of this exchange; while a text never sent to the other user refers to themes like desire and intimacy in the age of data.
