REIF.LIFE X ARCHIVIO CONZ PARADOX 7/11


REIF.LIFE

ON MY BACK IS A LIE. ON MY CHEST IS THE TRUTH. Welcome to 7/11, a series of events inspired to Bertold Brecht’s Paradox. Let us offer you some contradictory gestures to unmask the counterfeit of each ideological scheme. The Paradox of alienation and estrangement. The Paradox of space and time. The Paradox of Eros & Death. The Paradox of identity. The Paradox of a lie so sincere it becomes a truth untold. The Paradox of the malleable grid in between reality and fiction. The Paradox of all questions unanswered, riddles unsolved, of all the lovers of all the parallel dimensions never encountered. Verfremdungseffekt, BEWILDERMENT. Questions answered with questions posed. The night that becomes the day that becomes the day that becomes—the night.

Brought to you by REIF.LIFE & Archivio Conz, PARADOX 7/11 started on May 7th with an intervention by Douglas Gordon in a Venetian garden. Throughout the following days both our truths and lies manifested themselves around Venice in the form of t-shirts. At the bar, off the fish market, caught in a kiss. A playful continuum on Brecht’s attention to the details of everyday life, letting the casual passerby as much as the observer to embrace the PARADOX again and again. A climax lead to Saturday 11 May, when the project culminated with a evening series of performative acts at The BAUER PALAZZO HOTEL  featuring: Matilde Cerruti Quara, Cibelle Cavali Bastos, Vava Dudu
From the hotel a scenery walk to the Accademia di Belle Arti, where Isabel Lewis presented a workshop, intertwining our program with that of the 2019 Salon Swiss. Afterwards, Lewis will lead everyone back to Club B at the Bauer, where she will start REIF 17, a nocturnal celebration of Paradox. Among others, the line up for the night includes Gigiotto Von Alt among others.
