Tools for Imagination
Screening and conversation with Céline Condorelli and Luca Lo Pinto
Tools for Imagination is an artwork by artist Céline Condorelli which will become part of the MACRO collection. This work intends to develop a wider and articulated investigation on the topic of Leisure. Through the production of a body of works, talks and study materials, the project explores the history of work (productive time) and its necessary negative, the history of leisure (unproductive time), generating a paradox concerning the museum as the institution that, par excellence, perform the notion of time freed from working hours.
The artist (live streaming) will converse with Luca Lo Pinto, Artistic Director of MACRO, starting from Tools for Imagination. This event is also the unique opportunity to present in preview fragments of the film After work made by Condorelli with the British filmmaker Ben Rivers: tis film is part of the work itself. This meeting follows 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).
Tools for Imagination is an artwork by Céline Condorelli produced by Ramdom (Italy) and supported by the Italian Council (8th edition 2020), program to promote Italian contemporary art in the world by the Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity of the Italian Ministry of Culture.
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”.
