Tim Parchikov. Suspense

08/10 - 13/11/2011
Museo di Roma in Trastevere

In cinema, suspense represents an unresolved conflict, an obscure situation, an accumulation of dark anguish. This mode of narration arose in the years following World War II, and almost immediately acquired a new meaning in the context of the second wave of European existentialism, wonderfully adapting itself to portraying the irrational melancholy that pervaded the world in the aftermath of the war.

Parchikov’s project, Suspense, is a visual manifesto of the new “lost generation” of young people who, in the late 20th and early 21st century, have acquired full freedom of information and movement, plus the illusion of total communication, but have lost the integrated system of value judgments, suddenly coming up against the deepest solitude.
Their lives have turned into a solitary journey in search of their lost self-identification, a journey in which each stopover and each encounter with reality is a form of suspense.
