You should see this show in person to get the full impact (no pun intended). It's timely, telling, and beautiful work. Politics aside, these are compelling images.
When Antonioni turns his poetics onto the culture of American capitalism and mass consumption it becomes a spectacular display of imploding and exploding objects occurring within the subjective field of vision of Daria. She rushes out of the building in which the capitalists are making deals to exploit the vast American terrain and, with disgust, commands its violent explosion. In a surreal, circular way, the explosion occurs over and over from different angles, and finally gives way to a series of imploding objects of mass consumption (TV, food, clothing, etc.).
The latter becomes a moment of pure poetic spectacle, as through a hypnotizing slow motion and electrifying score the explosion and the movement of objects through space is rendered graceful and brilliant. Flying toward the viewer, these many shards of shiny bits and pieces that once served a utilitarian purpose when part of a greater object here exist in and of themselves in a purely dazzling spectacle. This is the only way Antonioni can see the beauty of American capitalism, as a rainbow of shattered objects lost in space and time. The poetic spectacle ends abruptly, and we return to Daria with a hint of knowingness and satisfaction in her smile. She leaves the frame and Antonioni leaves us with the eternal power and mystery of the radiating sun, an elemental object that we see as a composition of line, shape and colour.
