A hazardous mixture of omnipotence and impotence. , or more precisely, arbitrariness, is the underlying structure of this modest, yet grand mobilization. Confronted with an arbitrary sequence of demands, with no established parameters, working and living in a metropolis they know nothing, and know deeply about like the palm of their hands, and waking up to different issues they are either dimly aware of, or have been doggedly following up, this promises to be some chaotic family reunion.
Serial Killers is a response to parallel notions of seriality, non-seriality, or counter-seriality. Seriality as conceptual strategy, considered by most critics as a postmodern aesthetic, attempts to find resonance in the works of artists in their seemingly endless body of work, blurring randomness, and, or predetermination, in their repetitiousness. Repetition and seriality have been a recurrent mode of artistic production to some of the most prolific Umberto Eco, famous scholar of semiotics, believes that, today, there is in operation a sense of aesthetic repitition involving a radical conception of seriality: one that ‘wholly escapes the “modern” idea of literature and art.’ (Serial Killers was first mounted in December of 2008.).
