Lizzie Fitch e Ryan Trecartin’s enormous installation, made for the exhibition Prima Materia, combines three works from different periods. The first is an enormous space in which visitors feel free to do what they want… but this seemingly normal room is scattered with senseless elements, like chairs that emerge from clouds of sand. On the earphones, we can listen to the audio of the video that’s being projected onto the ceiling: eccentric actors shout incomprehensible things and wear strange outfits. It looks like a horrible television programme, or an amateur film on YouTube. Looking at that video is like losing ourselves on the web, opening tens of internet pages and being hypnotised by the worst things possible! The second installation consists of a strange, distorted house; the sofa on the upper floor can’t be reached. Luckily, there’s a third space, with two enormous sofas and rotating chairs. But here too, the two artists play a dirty trick. Yes, we can finally relax, but there’s nothing interesting to do; it feels like we’re in IKEA. From absolute confusion, we pass to monotony; and from folly to normality. The middle ground is the little house into which we can’t enter. These three installations seem like the different scenarios of our lives, but exaggerated to the extreme: we can enjoy ourselves but can also feel bored to death!
