Stefano Parrini: Fail (Urbanautica, 2018)



Stefano Parrini was born in Barberino Val d’Elsa (Florence) and lives in Poggibonsi (Siena). Since 2007, he has attended many exhibitions throughout Italy and won several prizes. He is co-funder of the collective Synap(see).







Parrini gives a name, a face, and a shape to a personal landscape, starting from its ruins. The fragments of memory. The result is a confusing panorama, with a shining asymmetric vision of the time that tips over and frustrates the memory dimension. A monotheist vision arises from it. Sometimes it is unintelligible, but it seems to delete and prevail on the strength of the actual imagination which is a function of an abstract and uniforming aesthetics glorifying a roaming, flat, binary language. “Fail” is an alert madness. It is an oxymoron meant to highlight the role of the prevailing brainless technocracy that disintegrates individual history. All this being in support of a virtual settlement secured into an eternal and precarious present which tends to look more like a dementia, a perceptual dysfunction. Text by Steve Bisson
