About

In the P.E.T. Projects presents the exhibition "Phasmatic Erratic Theory" and the book "Weird Flex II" by Young Agamben. The exhibition consists of a kinetic sculpture, a neon light sign, a series of digital paintings and printed curtains.


The press release mentions, among other things:
"Young Agamben (@young_agamben) is a grounded, de-constructed, conceptual character and in the Spring of 2023 he will manifest himself in Athens. Not working at the intersection of art and philosophy, this unspoken schoolmaster will show a body of carefully crafted artwork consisting of a kinetic sculpture, a neon light sign, a series of digital paintings and printed curtains.
The sculpture essentially consists of a track made of sand and a collection of philosophers' heads placed inside transparent plastic balls [...]
The neon sign is a challenge for machine vision. A self-portrait, a dialectical signifier that is not - and will not be - readable by the computers of today and tomorrow. You can try to take as many pictures as you want with your smartphone but its OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software will never understand what the inscription says. [...]
The digital paintings have been achieved through some very sophisticated artificial intelligence algorithms [...]The reason behind the curtains is this:
a) They are impressive
b) They herald the coming era in which memes will reign supreme against the tyrannical images that are currently burning us to death.

The book "Weird Flex" is a montage of printed memes, the restoration of a feed. [...] After the successful presentation of the first issue at Superattico (Milan) in the summer of 2022, Young Agamben brings the second issue of Weird Flex II to Greece. [...]"
