The Truth – Alexandre Murucci

Installation Production

Cairo Biennale


From this reflection point, the work presents an installation – “Truth” (from Google Series), a sculpture built with a seesaw and lunettes at its ends sides, alluding the volatility of versions and visions of the truth. This set is inserted in a panorama constructed with a horizon line formed by word “Truth”, translated by 104 languages of Google Translator, the most onipresent tool of tools, as an analogy of power holding, because these are the languages “elected” by the multinational giant, relativizing our understanding of what the truth is.
