BUNKER, Via Odorici 6B, Brescia IT
Please Rewind explores the traces that human beings unconsciously leave behind on media objects. The work takes videotapes from Centro Kim’s archive that have not been rewound; capturing the precise frame where the tape had last been stopped after viewing. These frames were then turned into animated gifs and projected into the walls of an ex-bunker in Brescia, Italy, built as a safe space during World War II aerial raids. The walls, made of grainy and rugged cement, blend with the projected image, giving it a peculiar texture. The essence of the work, giving new meaning to dead images, comes together with the essence of the exhibition: giving a new purpose to a place with a complicated history.
