MASSIMO is thrilled to announce +39 334 2928559, the first solo show by the multidisciplinary project Dafne, founded in 2019 by Filippo De Marchi, William Merante, and Giovanni Riggio. After the first musical project Loser With A Strategy, published in 2021, Dafne is now presenting the latest outcomes of the group’s research processes.
The exhibition revolves around the idea of a telephone call, alluding to a conversation between strangers.
In abstracting MASSIMO's space through the connection fee, an animated map of the keyboard was drawn housing the characters of a scene between the speaker and the microphone.
Telephone-thinking has opened some study windows on figures such as the triangle and the triangulation, the surfaces of the solids of rotation such as the cone and the cylinder, the hourglass and the points of convergence, the vortex, the shadow, the fusion, the projection, the number and the section.
In the i-n-t-e-r-m-i-t-t-e-n-c-e of a wait, in the continuous bounce between repeaters, antennas and satellites, Dafne presents a collection of projects / objects / ideas in which information bends, radiates, fragments and recomposes itself.
