Alberto Peola Arte Contemporanea

The Alberto Peola Gallery is pleased to present Thorsten Kirchhoff’s solo exhibition Underground Party.

The exhibition originates from a video inspired by director Emir Kusturica’s film Underground (1995). In Kusturica’s film, the protagonists seek refuge from the war bombings in an air-raid shelter where they will hide for many years, well after the end of the conflict, in an attempt to experience the joy which is impossible to find in the world above. Similarly, Thorsten Kirchhoff’s video hints at the possibility of finding an alternative to the desolate and sterile present reality, one in which the human need to find answers, however vain and illusory, is still alive.
