Opening Thursday, December 12th at Et al, San Francisco is “Present Perfect,” a an exhibition by Luca Antonucci and Daniel Small. “Present Perfect” ruins the distinctions it proposes, and moves back and forth in time through a speculative discourse with fetishized abandon. Some objects serve as placeholders for the elusive present, while others are reminders of a past that is never fully recuperated. The excised space of objects since removed are gaps to be found and filled but exist in a lineage of objects that can never be located. There were no limitations to the strategies employed in locating, obtaining, and exhibiting the objects in “Present Perfect”. All have dubious provenances and were stolen, repurposed, fabricated, fictionalized and rerouted through varying historical chronologies.


Opening Reception: Thursday, December 12th, 2013. 7-10pm
