Digital Lecture – 4 | Paolo Patelli

We were very glad to have Paolo Patelli join us for the 4th Digital Lecture of our workshop. We had the chance to discuss with him on some of his recent and previous works. Paolo, an architect and a researcher, currently based in the Netherlands, explained how he uses fieldwork, archaeological methods, and fiction to produce his work. His video installation Shore Leaves, which is currently being exhibited in the Dutch Pavilion, is dealing with the invisibility of labor under automation through the daily life of seafarers.  His work underlines that “while human presence and labor are still indispensable and of infrastructural importance, human bodies strive to adapt to remodeled times and spaces and descend further beneath a threshold of visibility.”
