ANDREA CERA – WORKS 2015 – PINK SQUIRRELS
A personal, small, independent project : Pink Squirrels (in collaboration with curator Steve Paterson of Plakart and artist/videomaker Dimitrjie Roggero).
The Pink Squirrels project is a near-future fiction, about the suicide of our culture, a ritual performed according to the laws of invasive entertainment. It depicts the damaged brain of a person affected by the “Tom Cruise Enacting Script Disorder”, an imaginary personality disorder [ http://www.plakart.org/pink-squirrelsI2.html ], in a post-catastrophe Italy, among the last living persons, mentally and physically destroyed by the evolution of more and more penetrating forms of entertainment. The not-so-distant ills described in the text are : the “Compulsory Fitness Syndrome”, the damages inflicted by new psychotropics twisted drinks, the “Portfolio Tactile Feedback” market crash in Chinese stock markets, the effect on adolescents of the the “Simu-Suicide” kits, the “Tele-Me Syndrome” [ http://www.plakart.org/pink-squirrelsH4.html ].
