The exhibition title “Rituals” borrows from the filmtheory concept of temps mort (timeout) coined by the Italian film director Michelangelo Antonionis, and used later by the Canadian poet Anne Carson in her essay FOAM. Antonionis would habitually “let the camera roll when the actors thought the scene was done”-which Carson decribes as “reality’s void” meaning the moment creates a stasis of fiction.
The artgroup Coyote wants to explore the contemporary “void of reality” where Covid-19 has turned our collective reality upside down.
Similar to Antonionis method of “letting the camera roll” after the end of a scene, Coyote intends to stage an interactive exhibition that blurs the borders between reality and fiction in this surreal present time.
We will organize an open art-talk with Coyote in our space in Gothenburg as well as over the online platform Twitch and on our social media channels.
