No Where – Now Here
Group show and Video Project
Los Angeles - Las Vegas Desert
Artists: Vitaly Bezpalov, Antoine Donzeaud, Hayden Dunham, Josh Evan, Paul Pascal, Deirdre Sargent and Emir Esh Šehanović
Vitaly Bezpalov, Antoine Donzeaud, Hayden Dunham, Josh Evan, Paul Pascal, Deirdre Sargent and Emir Esh Šehanović were invited to deepen the theme of CREEPY PASTA as a new frontier of experimental story poised between disturbing news and urban legend.
The work moves on two places shot in a motel room in Los Angeles and in the Las Vegas desert where the works insist on their ubiquity between a claustrophobic space that becomes a cage of thought and another dilated in which horizons and perspectives are lost.
ULTRASTUDIO announces the birth of the second space in Los Angeles with the aim of creating an ideal bridge between Europe and the United States becoming a borderland where the search for European artists merges and dialogues with that of overseas artists.
I travelled all night
Following a Coyote on the Highway
A Chinese head down in a corner laughed
Am I dreaming?
It’s there! It’s there!
There is the Snake.
Writings and graffiti and strange drawings
But once again night falls
And I’m drinking a Diet Coke
And I’m no longer thirsty
Not hungry anymore.
But far more important
I made a complete tour in this land of none
and at the end
I saw another me
of a second younger
So I resumed running
one second less
one second less
the other me tended to the et cetera
it was me
and I was the etcetera
and the distance between us was created.
We both knew
not to be made for the present
We were destined for oblivion
We were destined to drift.
