Ermes-Ermes, Vienna

Nicola Pecoraro, Diego Marcon

Ermes-Ermes presents a new series of drawings by Nicola Pecoraro (1978, IT) and a video installation by Diego Marcon (1985, IT), the highlight of this dialogue is built by the friction of their practice approach.

 

Nicola Pecoraro works in different mediums, often investigating material processes, and the way objects can be perceived according to the information they contain. 

Recently his studio practice has focused on drawing, and sound-based works, which, while still being connected to the process-based nature of his previous works, seem to be a point of departure towards an altogether different form of narrative.

 

Diego Marcon’s (1985, IT) research focuses on the relation between reality and representation, investigating the ontology of the moving image and its possibility to be a tool of knowledge of the real through the phantasmagoric.

His work tries to be the contact point between a cold, structural approach to cinema and a sentimental, secular one, typical of movies’ genres such as horror and cartoons, whose topoi—isolated from any narrative context—are explored and stressed to give shape to an uncanny dimension.
