This June The Future Tense will present Wonderful World – the concluding act in Gérard Rancinan’s Trilogy of the Moderns.
Situated somewhere between comedy and tragedy, this vivid photographic tableau and accompanying texts paints a picture of a confused humanity, groping blindly in the darkness, obsessed with the cult of celebrity and guided only by an absolute desire for generalised, prescribed happiness.
Fresh from La Triennale di Milano, Rancinan brings this revolution in three acts to a close, debuting the complete Wonderful World series to the UK public.
The exhibition will also offer attendees a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become part of art history by participating in the final Wonderful World composition, which will be shot entirely on-site at the Londonewcastle Project Space. Gallery three will feature a purpose-built set and studio, offering a voyeuristic glimpse behind the scenes of a fine art photo shoot. Repeat visits will reveal the organic nature of studio life – part art installation, part film set, part soap opera – as the shoot moves from concept, through production and postproduction, to the climactic unveiling of the finished work at a special reception on Wednesday 20th June.
Open auditions will be held at the galleries on 9th and 10th June so don’t miss out on your chance to be part of art history!
