Goodbye Bye Bye
The exhibition backtracks through a narrative that lasts just a few moments, like a flash in the head of a young boy. All this happens in the cosmos, while the universe expands, galaxies float in a spiral, and white dwarfs collapse. Creatures that seem to come from another planet are transformed into fossils, while a gate made for crossing the universe falls into ruins. On a shelf we find fingers progressively devoured by a fungus, like frames in a time-lapse film. Moving forward in space, but backwards through the narrative, we encounter a large seashell made of olive wood, resting on the floor. It is the archetype of a seashell, its forms are geometric and pointed, simplified and accentuated: it is the perfect seashell. In the last room, we find the protagonist: a boy swimming under water, observing a seashell.
