Abstract

Back to Mulholland Drive uses the David Lynch’s cult movie Mulholland Drive (2001) as a sort of raw material and visual pattern tank, to reveal an emerging trend of the contemporary art scene we could qualify as ‘minimal fantasy’. There is indeed a feeling of ‘uncanny’ coming from the works gathered in the exhibition, an alarming and magical atmosphere through minimalist forms, exploring the enigmatic potential of apparently glassy and paltry things.

The exhibition catalogue offers a short trip through this universe, with images and texts – some of which were compiled in order to give a wide point of view on the movie, its urban frame, its psychoanalytic and artistic streams, multiplying the possible keys to open the blue mystery box.
