Hamouda, who works between Milan, Helsinki and Tunisi, will show new work at Antonio Miranda butcher shop. Including a dedicated gift by Nicole Colombo, there will also be an accompanying text by Liege’s Diesel Project Space curator and co-founder Noëmi Merca, who moves between experiences of sensation and dead matter:
“Love. I remember this feeling; to love and to be loved. Also, the one who drives us to transcend ourselves through desire. Sweet passion: intense and pure, floating in an air balloon filled with a transparent liquid. Then, everything suddenly vanishes.”
This will be PANE’s third project in the their home city, Milan and marks their first solo exhibition.
The project is conceived around the concept of some kind of anti-exoticised Chinese cafe that ironises a globalised otherness with the press release announcement that it “DOESN’T list abstruse and exotic Chinese dishes with bright names”.
For their next exhibition, the Pane Projects curatorial team based in the Italian city presents Bubble Tea, opening December 14 and running to the December 21. It also offers a packed line-up including Age of Aquarius, Paul Barsch, Derek Paul Boyle & Mitra Saboury and Jason Hirata among others and will explore the idea of ‘newness’ in relation to the millennial generations’ capability of “astonishment [and] incredulity towards something unknown.”**
