Waiting for the Sun brings together five artists whose practices rethink our relationship to fiction and cinematic narratives.
Dora Budor’s (b. 1984 in Zagreb, Croatia, lives and works in New York) installations articulate a fascination for deconstructing the conventions and memories of cinema’s narratives and techniques, its props and poetry, its distance and desire, reinvesting them into physiological situations. Fascinated with apocalyptic manifestations and inspired by the year 1816, also called “the year with no summer” that saw climatic abnormalities provoke a severe volcanic winter, Budor has conceived a diffuser of fake ash, blowing gray powder in the gallery and continuously reacting to our human presence and physicality. In the center of the space, the artist has disposed a white modular sofa Superonda, designed by the Tuscan architects group Archizoom Associati in 1966 and emphasizing on cinematic momentum and radical utopian narratives.
