Argentinian-born, Barcelona-based Six N. Five, a.k.a Ezequiel Pini, is best known for his poetic mirages that combine sculptural, architectural and digital techniques that transform the viewers’ experience of time and space. Structured over four “acts”, Memories of Tomorrow contemplates the plasticity of perception and memory in the digital age. The narrative unfolds through a series of spatial "performances", played out through Pini’s rigorous and symphonic studies of light and shadow, symmetry and geometry. Recalling Joseph Kosuth’s seminal conceptual gesture, the chair recurs throughout Pini’s installation as a motif of human presence and absence, caught between pixels and atoms.

Opened in 1928, the Capitol Theatre Building was a symbol of Shanghai’s golden era, with its dreams of technological and cosmopolitan futurity. Almost a century on from that cinematic golden age, we sit at a far more ambiguous juncture, where technology is a ubiquitous force in our lives. Pini’s oneiric interventions into the Capitol’s architectural surface excavate the spectral and existential presence of the digital in shaping our realities, blurring the boundaries between history, memory and dream.
