ALFREDO JAAR, Le ceneri di Pasolini

Alfredo Jaar \ Le Ceneri di Pasolini.mp3 Interview from www.radiopapesse.org

ALFREDO JAAR, Text by Gabi Scardi

“In his work there is an underlying sensation that there is an inalienable correlation between ethics and aesthetics… that reality can be not only related but also constructed: constructed through the energy and the critical attitude towards art and culture, through their possibility to interact with the widest possible social contexts, to transmit values and through new visions of development, to respond to the fundamental needs of contemporary life.
[…]
To Pasolini he dedicated the video The Ashes of Pasolini (2009) that the artist produced especially for the exhibition “The Fear Society”.
These are the words Alfredo Jaar uses to present his project: “I will present a short film entitled The Ashes of Pasolini. It is a modest film about the death of an extraordinary intellectual.
It is mostly based on documentary material discovered after 1975, the year of his death, and before. As you know, it is still unclear who killed him. But for me, it has always been clear why: it was because of fear. Fear of his voice, fear of his life style, fear of his ideas, fear of his opinions, fear of his intellect. He was the totally complete intellectual: a filmmaker, a poet, a writer, a journalist, a critic, a polemist. He was totally involved in the cultural and political life of his time. As an artist he took risks, broke the rules, he created his own rules. Pasolini wrote one of the most beautiful poems of the 20th century titled The Ashes of Gramsci (2005), a eulogy to another great Italian thinker, Antonio Gramsci. The title of my film is based on this poem by Pasolini but I chose it to write a eulogy to Pasolini himself. In these dark times in which Italy finds itself, Pasolini’s voice is sorely missed.”[…]

(Santiago, 1956. Lives and works in New York).
Jaar believes in a relationship between ethics and aesthetics, placing great emphasis on the society, that should be active and socially responsible regarding culture.
