Cultural Hysteria

Now open at LEA16 is an installation by Mario Zecca entitled Cultural Hysteria. For now, artwork exists only on the ground level, but the artist plans to add one sky platform per month as the work evolves, and to hold music, dance and poetry events. The exhibition consists of large and colorfully textured prims, some textured with abstract patterns and other with representational sketches derived from the process of automatic drawing. "These are images that I have 'drawn' from my imagination, the feedback from a lifetime of studying while I enjoyed cartoons, comic books, illustration and academic drawing," says Mario — more background information is here. "The name Cultural Hysteria will become evident in the platform sims to come," he adds, and one can only hope that they contain artwork more compelling than that which greets us now.
