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.”[…]

Murcia Cultural, cultural no profit association of the Autonomous Community of Murcia Region, presents, with the occasion of the 53rd International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, an international group show of artists who work or have worked on the theme of fear.

The world has changed in the last six months. Many of our convictions have collapsed, and we get hit by a new reality everyday. One thing can be sure: our society is governed by fear.
Fear is an emotional response to threats and danger. The capacity to fear is part of human nature but the experience of fear is affected by historical and cultural influences.
What do people fear most? Change, the other, financial chaos, spiders, death, terrorist attacks, unemployment, being a failure, immigration, being alone, the future…

The fundamental idea of this project is to show an art that could mirror the frightening times we are living in.

The Fear Society – Pabellón de la Urgencia is a project by the Region of Murcia, venue of the 8th edition of Manifesta – European Contemporary Art Biennial, scheduled for fall 2010.

Organization: Región Autonómica de Murcia, Consejería de Cultura y Turismo, Murcia Cultural
