Kila & Rusharc take us on a trip to fantasmagorical lands, in search of possible new parameters. Their latest collaboration, "The Impossibility of Love", opens up dream-like scenarios composed of organic matter and objects. With one principle well in mind, André Breton's "Mad Love" (L'Amour Fou).
A literary and philosophical idea the French writer used in 1920 to describe that pulsion to abandon everything in pursuit of the object of one's affection and desire.
The spatial references are those of classical paintings, 70s fantasy illustrations and science-fiction movies. The authors insert them into actual sets that were built to incorporate landscapes projected against giant backgrounds.
(Not so) still lifes, where action takes center stage. Movement is slow, like gelatin that drips from a table, or with the immediacy of an incandescent meteorite, provoking various emotional responses.
If, as the name declares, love is impossible, its ever-changing flow is yet a source of constant surprise.
