Maybe One Animal Bite It Twice

Solo exhibition by Clarissa Falco


February 4 – February 19, 2023

Opening: Saturday, February 4 at 7 p.m.


When did we turn into a cluster of non-integrated mechanisms?


The survival of mammoth ruins in a time of microscopic objects helps us to find unprecedented perspectives oriented to the future, which do not cancel the traumas of the past but transform them into possibilities for the present.


In this sense the space we live in is made up of stratifications, multiple paradigms and temporal spheres. Everything contributes to the continuous construction of the world in a dynamic relationship impossible to stop. The human paradigm of eternal development and accumulation based on static ideologies is now unsustainable. We need to rewrite the social contract, redefine our being in the world and the way we build it through hybrid narratives, dynamic aimed at collaboration.


Maybe One Animal Bite It Twice is configured as different sculptural nuclei made with materials from the Berlin-Moabit area. Therefore, the first letters in the title of the show are an abbreviation of Moabit.


The works are presented as hybridized clusters of different objects which together give life to a corporeality that simulate organic aspects.


Contemporary culture has shifted the focus of hybridization from high-tech laboratories to popular culture. Science fiction and horror literature (and cinema) contribute to developing this theme, underlining their ability to record our lives changes. The consolidated success of horror and sci-fi genres are a symptom of a new phenomenon that prefers the deviant, or the mutant, over the more conventional versions of the human being. Precisely for this reason, they provide us with appropriate cultural representations of these changes and transformations.


Flickering between human and mechanical, between biological life and material immortality, and between the figurative and the abstract, Maybe One Animal Bite It Twice raises questions about what it means to be human in times of increasingly hostile and unin-habitable planetary conditions. Is "the human" a category to which we should still aspire to belong? And how might humans look in the future if the species survives?


With Maybe One Animal Bite It Twice I want to get out of the putrefied imagination where the beauty of the anomalous body was not designed to move towards a representation of the subject that underlines the urgency to think about the unity of the body with its surroundings.
