Fondazione Prada presents "Slight Agitation 4/4: Laura Lima", the fourth and last chapter of the exhibition project conceived by Fondazione Prada’s Thought Council.
Following the previous three projects, Lima presents Horse Takes King, a whimsical attempt to distort the senses that determine our perception through three large sculptures, displayed in the spaces of the Cisterna, each contributing to the formulation of an apparently absurd taxonomy.
As stated by the curator Elvira Dyangani Ose "this situational game further highlights how Lima's proposition for Horse Takes King is inspired by the language of pataphysics: the law governing all the exceptions, a science impossible to define. To understand pataphysics is to fail to understand it, as explained by its creator, French poet and novelist Alfred Jarry. Trying to describe it is a fundamental mistake. Similarly, Lima's work borrows the poetic uselessness of a game of possible impossibilities to produce a work that resists interpretation. You are invited to try in; the game is on".
