Wheels of Desire. Gabrielle Le Bayon

"Art Will not disappear into nothingness; it will disappear into everything. " Julio Garcia Espinosa, Imperfect Cinema.

Wheels of Desire is the project that has been developed by Gabrielle Le Bayon during her residency at Homesession. The project focuses on the relation between the daily production and consumption of images on one hand, and our own relationship to reality and to our physical, geographical and metaphorical environment on the other hand. The artist statement underlines that “billions of pictures orbit in cyber space. Together they form a sentence that speaks a collective and communal, personal and informal meaning. Neither original nor immortal, they are the flow of time and swirls of thousands of individual realities and personal truths.” The project, based on the own accumulative practice of the artist, questions the way this hyper consumption shape the physical and conceptual places with which we connect.

The Evidence of Things Not Seen.

"The Evidence of Things Not Seen". Damaso Reyes & Diane Sylvester

The manifestation of faith or rather, its performance as evidence of the unknowable is the starting point for Damaso Reyes & Diane Sylvester's exhibition “The Evidence of Things Not Seen.” The show explores how belief is experienced by individuals and groups in The United States and Europe as well as the dialectic between its intimate nature and the more expansive community that faith builds through the external presentation of internal experiences.

Diane Sylvester's video installation “Jesus Man” documents the steps of an individual who has become over the course of twenty years both a local institution and a street evangelist. Through his daily routine “Jesus Man” is a catalyst of community for what would otherwise be a disconnected and isolated collection of individuals in New York's Manhattan Valley neighborhood. Through this visual and aural experience Diane shares the ritual nature of a religious “performance” that over time exceeds its spiritual starting point.

Damaso Reyes presents an audio and photographic work “Speaking in Tongues” which is based on two years of documentary research examining the rites of Pentecostal churches in Catalonia, England and Ukraine. The images and sound explored how deeply personal and transcendental experiences of prayer is manifested in public expressions of faith. His still images from Spain, England and Ukraine are juxtaposed with the recorded sounds of Pentecostal worship services in Catalonia to allow the audience to temporarily witness how this faith is experienced by some of its most devout adherents.

Your milk eyes: open. Anna Sebastian


Homesession is happy to invite you to the opening of "Your milk eyes: open", an exhibition by resident artist Anna Sebastian. Her works draw on familiar scenes, based a priori on the codes and parameters of daily life, including nevertheless variations that suggest to the viewer an evocation of uncertain fictions. Anna Sebastian uses the pictorial space as a surface for the inscription of an open working process, based on a composition of images inspired by literary and cinematic sources. This sets up a tension in the paintings; the obsessive and aporetic isolation of figures, which are subordinated to the reality of the medium, produces a dissension with the interpretative indetermination creating a distance between figures and their materiality. This sets them in a space of possibilities to which both dream and dys-functional reality leads.

Anna Sebastian (Londres, 1990) has been studying at Goldsmith College and at St Martins College, in London. Her work has been shown in different galleries in the UK (such as 5th Base Gallery-Bricklane or Islington Arts Factory) as well as Europe (HBFK Hamburg or DOX Art center Prague). This is her first exhibition in Spain.

Opening: Friday, July 12 - 2013, 19h30

Sunita Prasad, The Assassin's Last Word.



Homesession is glad to invite you to the presentation of Sunita Prasad's project, The Assassin's Last Word, an exhibition based on the story of Michele Angiolillo, an anarchist who was condemned to the death penalty for the assassination of prime minister Antonio Canóvas in 1897. His last word, "Germinal!", which has since been interpreted in multiple ways, is the main articulation of the exhibition. The show is both an installation and a reading-room based on public participation, collaborations and personal research by the artist. The project investigates the historic fact and its narrative as well as its possible echoes throughout time, from our own context.

Opening: friday, april 19th
Exhibition: April 20th to 27th, wednesday to saturday, from 5pm to 7.30 pm

Jean Barberis: artist talk




We're glad to invite you to the talk that our current resident Jean Barberis will hold at Homesession.

Jean Barberis is a maker, an artist, and a curator but he rarely makes a distinction between the various aspects of his practice. His work almost exclusively revolves around collective initiatives and relational strategies. According to Time out New York, Barberis defies Newton's laws of motion, which the artist consider flattering but slightly exaggerated.

A native of Provence and established in New York since 2000, Barberis co-founded Flux Factory's gallery space and Arts Collective, a project that fosters in collaborative practices and interchange as a base for the creation process. He has also collaborated with collective or project spaces such as EFA, Rabbit Hands, Swimming Cities or Mare Liberum.

Jean Barberis likes to engage artists in the curatorial process and to investigate new territories for creation in relation with the community. This ambition is clearly reflected in his interests that include urban exploration, shoemaking, boat building, and engaging in exchanges and economies outside of the confines of capitalism.

Curator of the project "la Salle de Concert" that will be presented this summer at the Palais de Tokyo, Jean Barberis will talk about the different aspects of his projects and interests.

When: April 6th, 2013 at 19h.
Where: Homesession, C/ Creu dels Molers, 15, Barcelona

Una de las primeras mañanas, a project by Julia Gorostidi.

Following the PRE-. group exhibition, we open now the first chapter of the InvitedOneDay 2012 programme with the project of Julia Gorostidi (Switzerland / Spain 1983).
Away from the practice of archive displayed in the projects "oneofthem" or "HowTo" Julia Gorostidi proposes a project and performative installation nature around the act of creation. "One of the first morning" is based of a book from the 80' that collects cosmogonies from various sources in the form of narrative disclosure: thanks to a small-scale staging of the interrelationships and forms of language resources present in these mythologies, Julia Gorostidi moves the original metanarrative to the exhibition's room and the creative process. The artist offers to the public a unique opening in which the project will take shape through a series of actions related to the constituent elements of the installation in progress.
With the collaboration of Paul Gorostidi.

Cháchara. 2012/02/09

Cháchara describes itself as "a talk at a given place and time". Homesession is glad to be this given place and to receive, with Cháchara's organizers, three British artists on Thursday, February 9: Maurice Carlin, Gary Leddington and David Price share an afternoon with us, just at the beginning of their residency at La Escocesa, to talk about their interests.

Like in every Cháchara, we invite people to share things that don't relate with their practice at all (or maybe they do) and we'll spend the afternoon eating delicious quiches.

Ramon Guimaraes at Espace Cultural Ample Gallery / Barcelona, from 26-03 to 05-06

The Espace Cultural Ample Gallery presents the individual show of Ramón Guimaraes: Identity Code.

Ramón Guimaraes has developed during last years works focusing on clichés, stereotypes and human relations, always referring to the identity as one of its most important guidelines.

Working with medias such as video, photography, drawings and objects, Ramon Guimaraes uses daily life as a raw material for his work, transforming everydaylife actions, sentences or thoughts, touristic or cultural clichés into real performances. This work allows him to achieve a deconstruction of what this ordinary material implies about us, our feelings and our relations with the outer world.

Deconstruction which remain obvious in the use he makes of the masks, disguise and role-plays gathering ressources such as comedy, surprise and alarming atmosphere. Converting himself (say, his character) into more or less typical or recognizable stereotypes, he plays with the audience and seat ourselves in front of the things as they are: full of prejudices, fake appearances and deceptive freedom. From all the angles Ramon Guimaraes imagines, the audience will attend an image of the way we remain totally stuck in a social conception that's incompatible with the individual freedom we're convinced to have reached.

Where: Espace Ample Gallery, Barcelona
When: opening 26/03 at 7pm. Exhibition from 26/03 to 05/06
