Alessio Maria Romano - Bye Bye
In a place-non-place, a group of users ‘move and dance’ their bodies in a cyclical action system. An obsessive musical chairs of ‘physical actions’ in which UNDO (a function present in most modern software enabling users to undo what they have just done, generally on a document, to return to an earlier state) performs the speciﬁc and subtle task of turning back, cancelling, eliminating traces and details and then, perhaps, recovering them.
What remains after things have been undone? What leads us to undo something and how is what is left to be interpreted? Who decides to use it and when? Who is ‘undo’? What is the borderline separating the censorship body from the censorship notion today? Who is cancelling me out? Who and what is missing? Find the censor.
A show seeks out. An invitation to look, ﬁnd, choose, ﬁnish. Perhaps.
