The whole project is an investigation to reveal forgotten stories of the past. In fact, the title of the exhibition, Ultramar Sur, coincides with the name of the last secret operation of the Third Reich, the Nazi hierarchy more than 50 submarine escape to Latin America in search of a land franco to retreat after the fall of Berlin. Hamilton dedicates ideally this research to the book by Roberto Bolaño, “Nazi literature in America” and in this nondescript overlapping of historical memory, literary contributions and collective imagination, the artist wishes to understand the origins of the myth and offer a re-writing of history through drawings, photographs, videos and objects.

This the first solo show in Italy for the Chilean artist Patrick Hamilton is curated by Marcello Smarrelli.
