Rebuilding Beirut with Pride (18/31)

Notes


Niccolo Binda’s works explore the everyday themes of living in 21st century society. Navigating nostalgia, branding, desire and how we form connections with and fetishize cultural artefacts. The pieces question how corporations and individuals attach themselves to symbols, causes and products to present themselves to the public.
By appropriating the visual language of suburbia, the urban environment, high and low culture, corporate logos and advertising, the works feel like a highly covetable consumer product. Using recognisable symbols and industrial manufacturing processes, the works achieve a similar resonance to that of a popular brand or iconic children’s toy. They have a warm, soft, hazy façade. However, underneath the polished surface, a mildly depressing reality lurks and ideas of desire, the cyclic nature of 21st century culture and the emptiness of the promises made by consumer culture are being explored.
