Waiting for the Accident to Happen

Waiting for the Accident to Happen è il risultato della collaborazione tra Careof e Screen Space. Nel 2014 i direttori di Screen Space, Simone Hine e Kyle Weise hanno presentato la mostra Moving Pictures / Expanded Space a Careof, partecipando al programma di residenze FDV Residency Program. Nel 2015 Antonella Croci, avendo vinto un'open call indetta dalle due organizzazioni, presenta la mostra Waiting for the Accident to Happen, con opere dall'Archivio Video di Careof. Entrambe le mostre esplorano la natura, l'interpretazione e la validità dell'archivio.

Waiting for the Accident to Happen include le opere di nove artisti, provenienti dall'Archivio Video di Careof e non, che riflettono sulla frammentarietà dell'archivio. L'archivio video, costruito in oltre 25 anni, soprattutto dai suoi fondatori Mario Gorni e Zefferina Castoldi, è il risultato di contributi unici e vari che riflettono le storie personali e professionali quanto la storia della video arte e comprende oltre 8000 opere d'arte video. L'Archivio Video di Careof è un esempio della natura imprevedibile dell'archivio e della sua costruzione, piuttosto che un riflesso chiaro della realtà. A partire da questa idea, le opere incluse, giocano sul confine tra la documentazione, la realtà e la finzione.
