From September 22 to October 22, 2023, we are delighted to present Dear Moment, I Keep U for Later, the second exhibition for the FUTURES hub's opening month, featuring the work of Swiss artist Nicolas Polli. Witness the evolution of his nearly finished exhibition, which he will continue to develop over the weeks following its opening, as Nicolas resides within the exhibition space. This promises to be an innovative and multilayered experience that you won't want to miss.

"At Futures, I will have a month, with a chance of showing already to the public my work after a few days from my arrival. I need to be prepared, I need to work on an exhibition that can exist as an evolutionary practice. I want to work on the idea of dexterity and layering.I will print some of my images in different sizes, and start using them in the space. My work regularly plays between the commercial creation of images together with the reflection around waste or what is considered as such.I would like the experience in Amsterdam to be a chance to focus on space and materiality. Showcasing an immerging world for a public outside Switzerland and not used to seeing what I create. I want people to come several times and try to experience something new each time.I would like to create new images, working with the local culture and focusing on representing realities around me. Working with markets, buying, photographing, and consuming local products. I would like to understand the habits of a fast city like Amsterdam, how do people consume? how do people waste? What attitude is behind reusing things?I will also do performances around food, showcasing photography that will then find a place on plates that are going to be served to people, between a tasteful reality immersed in a visual one. This will be my experience there. A hub evolving in time.Images will be composed analogically, cutting and ripping paper to work with layers. Conceptually I will represent the layering of advertising in the street, where one advertising goes on top of another one, and a poster goes on top of another one, keeping track of the fast-consuming society we live in. The exhibition will be overwhelming with several images used in different ways: on the walls, on the ground, on stands, on the windows, outside"
