OBJECTS FOOD ROOMS
[REPEAT THE SAME AND IT IS NO LONGER THE SAME]
In one of her texts, Stein questions the paradigm of identity of things and the endless possibilities of interpretation:
“Are two things the same when they are what one thing is? And how am I to apply what the one thing shows me to the case of two things?”
She then gathers that repeating the same action makes it different. This exhibition offers another perspective, a repetition of a known action that is already different.
Just like the book, the exhibition is divided into three parts: objects, food and rooms. In the book, each section includes a series of texts/portraits that allow us a glimpse into the domestic world, an interior world full of common objects and scenes of everyday life.
The selection of these works not only allows us to highlight the transcendence of Stein’s ideas, but also to build bridges and discover the common grounds shared by key artists of the early 20th century and contemporary artists that exist in radically different spatial-temporary contexts.
