#IRL is an open conversation between Gervais and Ludy through the technology they use to create art, physical sites, the environment and the public. Without any of these elements there would be no in-real-life (#IRL) experience. The artists will be in constant flow, moving without a precise destination and deciding the location for the piece at random. Gallery stands, cafes, lounges, corridors or communal resting spaces will all become the original sites for the work. The ‘in-real-life’ conversation between Gervais and Ludy can be iconographically compared with a freestyle rap battle, as the artists will perform without a previously produced script. Curated by Valentina Fois.

The Internet is slowly but surely changing our lives: whether it’s how we react to a “ding,” the way we receive images, how we make art, how we fall in love, or how we fuck. As much as we are using it, it also reprograms us. From the Cloud and URLOVE both explore the impact the Internet has from two different perspectives: our evolving relationship to images and to, broadly, eros.

#Post is a virtual residency, hosting a different artist each month. The residency programme will focus on artists who engage with the digital in a post internet age, using La Scatola’s website as the gallery space. The work presented by each artist is linked by the temporary space it inhabits.
Each residency will remain visible on the website. Through existing solely online, #Post2 is by nature an open project, widely accessible and able to be framed in any number of contexts, without being tied to a physical space; in this it can be viewed as a constantly developing exhibition framework.
#Post2 is curated in turn by each resident artist.
The programme has been curated by Valentina Fois.
