For BIM’2021 and as part of the MIRE project, the Centre and the FCAC co-produced Daily Dense Dance Desiderio (DDDD), a video installation that offered a poetic diversions for users of Champel station. We are delighted to present the publication Daily Dense Dance Desiderio (DDDD) from this project at an evening event attended by the artist and Andrea Bellini.
The publication Daily Dense Dance Desiderio (DDDD) is an attempt to extend on paper the ephemeral cinematographic, sound and visual experience of the original work commissioned during the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement – BIM ’21 curated by Andrea Bellini and DIS and co-produced with the Fonds cantonal d’art contemporain Genève as part of its MIRE project. The blurred boundaries between the organic and the inorganic, the human and the machine, predictive computing and the artist’s mental landscape become clearer to create an uninterrupted, fluctuating and lyrical flow. The 365 messages are published for the first time as a collection of poems, furtive thoughts, random shoots and buds. In addition to the messages and a visual documentation of the original work, the book opens with a conversation between Riccardo Benassi and Andrea Bellini and a text by Noa Merlini and Beatrice Sartori (Studio Riccardo Benassi) on the genealogy of the Daily Desiderio body of work.
