Candies / Matteo Coluccia
On Friday 25 June, 2021, the Toast Project Space will present Candies, a personal exhibition by Matteo Coluccia, curated by Stefano Giuri and Gabriele Tosi. The work transforms the space into an immutable, contrived image wherein any signs of change are to be meticulously eliminated on a daily basis. The model of suspended, ethereal, clean beauty that is typically sought after contrasts sharply with meanness and destruction, the qualities that more accurately describe what really happens backstage at Toast. The title refers to the nicknames of certain performers who dance within the space, trailing colour behind them as they move and jump, creating a sort of visible omen.
