YOU ALWAYS GO DOWN ALONE
Vernon Projekt, Heřmanova, Prague
Bianconi’s work has evolved as an unrelenting analysis of the relationship between the uniqueness of the ego and multiple identities. Departing from autobiography, this analysis has progressed to speculative reflections on the human being in his/her individual and social components.
In his installation ‘You Always Go Down Alone’, various objects are fastened to 100 pieces of string, woollen threads, and wires to form rain descending from the ceiling of the space. The ‘falling’ objects become divinatory charms, which mark the memory of a personal experience that takes place somewhere between materiality and spirituality. This raining ‘objects/charms’ is an objectified representation made up of entities that are both isolated and mutually related, and each stream is very close to the other, resulting in a kind of encounter between different realities.
‘You Always Go Down Alone’ is a dichotomy of the public-self and the private-self.
It is a dream-like journey that blurs the boundary between the conscious and the subconscious, between time and space.
The human being on a journey – upwards or downwards?
