You Simply Destroy the Image
I Always Had of Myself

May 3 – August 1, 2015


Curated by renowned curator and art critic Octavio Zaya, Theorem presents large-scale installation, sculpture, video art, and photography by 30 international artists.


Several artists from far-flung locations such as Peru, Brazil, and Norway, are traveling to Mana to create their installations on-site. The artists address the hypothetical question ‘what if?’ – as inspired by Pier Paolo Pasolini’s 1968 film Teorema – contemplating a world turned upside-down, where social tensions can be amplified to the point of poetic subversion, achieving possible transcendence.
