Combining cross-disciplinary knowledge and everyday banality, Daniele Formica develops temporary theories on the universe and its people. Through sculpture and performance, Daniele elaborates such theories and shares them with others.
At Unfair™ he presents a mise en scène of tragicomic situations and beyond reasonable comprehension. ‘Ulysses is spinning in God’s willed vortex a couple of kilometers from Gibraltar. He has crossed Hercules’ “Ne plus ultra”-the ancient world’s limit. I look up to the sky and wonder whether he’s stopped spinning. I look at my contemporaries, listen to the Bee Gees, and keep asking myself: how many steps have we left the caves behind?’
