Copperfield, London is pleased to present Ra di Martino's second solo exhibition with the gallery, Poor Poor Jerry, which draws on the language of animation and film to develop an emotive, absurd and chaotic narrative that cherry picks from cinematographies audio history. "Over time, music, cinema and television has built a sharable and common imaginary, intertwining on many levels, and forming a free sentimental encyclopedia not based on an alphabetic or gender order. A set of signs apt to determine ages, places and experiences, both on a collective and personal level. Even if for many this experience becomes an instrument to better arrange emotions and build personal maps with which to move inside reality through the association of memories, for someone else it represents a burden from which it's impossible to get free, a dead weight hindering new thoughts and original visions. Poor Poor Jerry investigates our collective awareness, overlapping the deeds of an icon of an American animated series and desert landscapes of Lanzarote with pop cinema soundtracks and dialogues." - Introduction by curator, Davide Giannella Opening Wednesday 21 March 2018, 6 - 9pm Exhibition runs 22 March - 6 May 2018 weekly Wednesday to Saturday, 12 - 6pm Poor poor Jerry was produced with the support of Snaporazverein and Marselleria, Milano.
