 parapluie 30.7-20.08.2016 spazio OnArte, Minusio curated by Heyer Thurnheer Gianluca Monnier and Andree Julika Tavares (working together under the name of Parapluie) also consider social codes, socio-anthropological contexts and their impact on individuals and society the real pivotal points around which their work revolves, mainly utilizing video, photography and installation. From personal results, yet originating by a meditation upon the same questions, they start in 2008 a real common work as a couple, investigating this themes and giving form to a “metaphysics of the real and the unreal” (1): it is a re ection upon the relationship between themselves and a world seen as ambiguous and unintelligible, where the boundary between real and unreal, presence and absence, inside and outside evaporates; a world very di cult to connect with, since everything in it is manipulated, contaminated, mixed up and in trans- formation. Concepts as fragile identity, violence, the feminine in all its stereotypes are expressed through installations that can be read on di erent levels (ironical and provocatory, critical, historical, aesthetical, philosophical).* * extract from the presentation text by the curator Heyer Thurnheer (1) by Paola Tedeschi-Pellanda / catalog text “the endless end” –Laboratorio Kunsthalle– Lugano / 2011 C'était le 3 mars 1965
