Stop Motherfuckers Group exhibition at "Lichtkunst aus Kunstlicht" curated by Gregor Jansen at ZKM Museum für Neue Kunst, Karlsruhe
Several car’s tail lights switched on laying down over the floor in a museum room, they are just pieces of a bigger system but the system is absent, they look like a ruins of a night traffic jam, they can’t move but still they can work as they used to. The red tail-lights are the warning signs in our daily life, telling us that we have to stop otherwise we’ll crash. The western society economical and technological development had brought the underdevelopment of the collective conscience and as a consequence the cynicism about global issues, Tail lights (Stop mother fuckers) is saying one more time stop to all the things we all know have to be stopped and at the same time is using the “art eco” to multiply this voice. The red tail-lights on are a powerful sign, they already had created a warning automatism inside us; I want to present this automatism as a conscience possibility, as a fact that confirm that still we can stop even when we are apart.
