“Tales of Comings on and Goings up” by Alfabetismo 2021
\ The Tales of Goings on and Comings up / by Alfabetismo Visual
The project aims to investigate the awareness and comprehension of a time, timing, culture and patterns in constant dissolution and continuously emerging from what it is left, what comes fleeting and intrinsic in a generation that is possibly too familiar and too legitimized, that it becomes a challenge to blink.
The anesthesia and inertia are self invited into the stereotypes and narrow narratives reach normality and the ‘bodies‘ are part of the loop. When once a upon a time is one second ago, leaving the unquiet creative mind questioning obedience to untamed disparities; social justice, human rights, geopolitical crisis, the body dictatorship, the new generations as new storytellers and story fixers, the developments of feminist and black, LGBTQ and etno-minorities movements.
The attempt of rebooting reaches the peak of self evaluation and perspectives of the perfect frame turn out closer to reachable and accessible. The place, the times, the faces, the hope, the look and the feeling become part of a play and while curtains are up, the chance of questioning the past and reconciliation of the present and tools to tell the future, it can’t be accepted as doomed as in a tale before.
It is an instant, a sensation, it is one second of reality, of looking back to the minute ago, to the early past, and to revisit the collective efforts and social mentality being rated by the goings on, but what puts apart the villain and the hero is the grey areas in between the plot, when that leaves us with the framing of the comings up, the silver linings of the History to be told and the History as it is.
