For this group exhibition inspired by science fiction and set up in an underground car park in central London, Andrea Morucchio presents Suspense Pulp series, it's a bidimensional installation made of six prints on mirror perspex, 30x30 cm each. This work is stimulated by the comics and by the science fiction film production of the 1950s which reflects the terrors of time by constructing the figure of the alien monster, invader from sidereal spaces. The reference to the pulp is intended as a connection to the poverty of the paper of the first comics, to its graininess, to its being "dirty". In the mirroring effect of the works, old and new fears are intertwined in a story of postponements.
Over the parking lot’s four floors and 12,000m2 of the parking lot, some one hundred artists exhibit immersive visual works and installations, the fruit of a “spontaneous exploration” of the sci-fi theme.“We live in an apocalyptic time, and we all have to pay attention,” he warns. What does sci-fi tell us about our present? Below, a visit through images, somewhere between retro future and dystopian present. Vanya Balogh
