2016. 2010. 1962.

The 20th of March 2010, after 187 years of inactivity, the Eyjafjallajökull erupted and 600 people were evacuated from the villages surrounding the volcano. The 15th of April the volcanic ashes' cloud led to the closure of many Northern European airspaces and airports. Apparently, Eyjafjallajökull is about a trip to Japan. It calls for both attention and distraction.

 

Guido Guidi: “non parlo solo di due occhi e una bocca, è tutta la superficie che ci guarda. Vedi, quello spigolo mi sta fissando adesso, questo dito anche”[I am not only speaking about two eyes and a mouth, it’s the entire surface that looks. See, that edge is staring at me now, this finger too]

Le 20 mars 2010, après 187 ans d'inactivité, l’Eyjafjallajökull est entré en éruption et 600 personnes ont été évacuées des villages entourant le volcan. Le 15 avril, le nuage de cendres volcaniques a conduit à la fermeture de nombreux aéroports du Nord de l'Europe. Apparemment, Eyjafjallajökull est à propos d’un voyage au Japon. Il appelle à la fois à l'attention et la distraction.

 

Guido Guidi: “non parlo solo di due occhi e una bocca, è tutta la superficie che ci guarda. Vedi, quello spigolo mi sta fissando adesso, questo dito anche”[Je ne parle pas seulement de deux yeux et une bouche, c'est la surface entière qui regarde. Regardez, ce bord me regarde maintenant, ce doigt aussi]

2016. 2010. 1962.

Op 20 maart 2010, na 187 jaar inactiviteit, barstte de Eyjafjallajökull uit. Er werden 600 mensen geëvacueerd uit de omliggende dorpen van de vulkaan. Op 15 april zorgde een enorme stofwolk van de assen van de vulkaan ervoor dat vele Noord-Europese luchthavens sloten. Blijkbaar, gaat Eyjafjallajökull over een reis naar Japan. Het roept zowel aandacht als afleiding op.

Guido Guidi: “non parlo solo di due occhi e una bocca, è tutta la superficie che ci guarda. Vedi, quello spigolo mi sta fissando adesso, questo dito anche”[Ik spreek niet enkel over twee ogen en een mond, het is het volledige oppervlak dat kijkt. Kijk, die rand is nu aan het staren naar mij, deze vinger ook]

Eyjafjallajökull is an exhibition on environmental conditioning, in the broad sense of term, that faces the impossibility of a monolithic representation and constructs a modifiable dimension through in-betweens, references in space and time and recurrence in subjects, structures, and in both physical and theoretical trajectories. Within the room a looking/looked-subject/object creates a movable space via repetition* of subjects, small errors, glitches and of the spaces arisen in between the images and the moving images.

* Repetition not intended as the recurrence of the same, but as the recurrence of pure difference.

“That is why beauty is not defined here […] by an inaccessible singularity: it is resumed here and there, it runs from difference to difference, arranged in the great syntagm of bodies.” Roland Barthes, Empire of Signs, 1982.
