Increasing the Wind Pressure
Solo show curated by Gabriele Tosi

24.03.2018 > 10.05.2018


A new series of bi-dimensional and three-dimensional works open up an exploration of a particular space of knowledge, in which the apparent objectivity of data and informations is constantly negotiated with the instability of human habits and environments.
As usual in Hell’s practice, the ruled monumentality that comes from the desire and the will of a realized order of things is hijacked by the artist focusing on details in which a ghostly singularity is presented as the unpredictable variable capable of building or destroying any projection of reality. Increasing the Wind Pressure oscillates between a limited presence and a global representation, calling us to experience the volatility of the written knowledge when it’s merged to the different ideas of freedom that lies in our interpretations of living.
