Kyle Giacomo “All Drives Lead to the Desert”
Desertification is one of many effects of global climate change. Human desires (Eros/Thanatos) drive an unsustainable machine towards complete breakdown. We seem incapable of stopping the forward motion, despite all signals, signs, and realities. We seem incapable of imagining an incomprehensible new way of being in the world. Can we reject the collective death drive (Thanatos) that speeds towards ecosystem collapse? Can a new symbolic order be founded on Eros? Or do all drives lead to the desert? This showcase plays with this sense of a confused symbolic order and seeks, through fragmentation, to find new visual pathways.
