The parade, which has always been ostentatiously solemn and pompous, emblematic of a show of magnificence, simultaneously acts as a vehicle for a show of shared involvement. The interest of this collective is piqued by cases where the order of multitude becomes broken, where the journey from magnificence to ramshackle manifests, giving life to meanings that are out of control, rendering every parade an episode in itself. Horses, chimeric matrices, fetishes of art and literature, are the object of this parade.
We are asking everyone to contribute to Super Cavalli – the inaugural project from Super Summer Extra Pomeriggio – by sending their own representation of a horse by post for the exhibition at TOAST for the entirety of its duration. The exhibition will take the form of a parade, beginning from the moment that the horse is sent, a parade that will be at first disorganised and haphazard but which then finds its own temporary order within the confines of the space at TOAST, until it is once again broken up.
Super Summer Extra Pomeriggio
Super Summer Extra Pomeriggio is a multidisciplinary artistic collective which looks into possibilities deriving from its own name.
The enormous, the immense, the disproportionate, all enter into a dialogue with an evanescent dimension where, in their reciprocal assonance and singularity, taken individually or in relationship to one another, Super and Extra become paradigmatic in the choice of appropriation of specific situations and styles.
