B.B. 5000 opens its first solo exhibition Hyperrruin (or ℋy℘erℜruⅈn) at Milan’s Galleria Davide Gallo where it will run from December 9 to February 20, 2016.
The art collective—composed of five students from the Brera Academy: Arcangelo e Francesco Costanzo, Filippo De Marchi, Giada Carnevale, Giovanni Riggio—takes its name from the Pacific island of Bora Bora, a “symbol of luxury, escape and oblivion…the myth of openmindedness and freedom”.
The themes of B.B. 5000—defined as “gambling, tension, cyber and mediatic contamination, mythology of the collective” find their roots in the accelerationism manifest and the prophecy that the crisis of capitalism is nigh.
