Opening  “A la cuenta de tres””

Viernes 4 de mayo, de 19 a 22 horas

 

How do we read stories? What kind of stories can objects tell us? What do these stories tell about us, our stories, beliefs, and feelings? What can we build from this? Stories have a core role in our everyday life, in the configuration of society and the building of identity. There are as many ways of reading stories as there are readers and stories, and as many ways to narrate as there are narrators and stories. “a la cuenta de tres” proposes three different narratives that take place at the same time; exploring three ways of reading, from different voices.

Projects:

“Adrift” by Layal Nakle

“Five short stories” by Katerina Ashche

“Holy no, no” by Maria José Serrano

Sylvie-Layal Nakle ( Ivory Coast, 1992) is a Belgo-Lebanese artist currently based in Barcelona. Using her multiculturalism to explore the wide notion of Identity,  themes such as migration, imperialism or western hegemony are recurrent in her work. Her practice consists in collecting images (moving or fixed), sounds, stories or opinions to construct her own artistic language. In that sense, her work can best be described as an assemblage of re-appropriated materials.

Katerina Ashche (Moscow, 1977) is Russian artist. She grew up in a family of circus performers and had a pet cheetah when she was a kid. Her art is about telling stories. The stories are based on the personal experience of the artist though one never knows where is the edge between the real and imaginary. Katerina works with storytelling using visual media such as installation or performance as well as texts.

María José Serrano (Uruguay 1979) was always curious about how the world works, that coming and going of people and objects. She studied economics with the illusion of getting some clues about these matters.That intuitive, analytical, illustrative background, starts a dialog with the plasticity and possibilities of the different languages she explored. Over time she found that the illusion of understanding the world gives way to the illusion of creating her own worlds. She works in a scale that goes from the very abstract thinking/feeling, to the most concrete/touchable things.

Collateral Effects – Beyond Radical Milan initiates a discussion concerning the relationship between art and politics within a european and local framework. As a tangent project to Radical Intention’s ongoing research, Collateral Effects – Beyond Radical Milan looks at issues that were raised throughout Radical intention’s year-long project Milano Radicale (2011-2012). These issues regard in particular art’s engagement with social movements, the social impact of movements on artistic profession, forms of alternative knowledge and the impact of technology, the notion of the political and its relation to practice.

“Tras las huellas del delito”. by Angie Bonino

The relationship between the information and political projects is at the ground of Angie Bonino’s work: the political modernity and, especially, the Nation-State’s demiurgic project that aims at constructing a shared reality for a territory and a people, carries with it many contradictions. Among the obstacles, the transnational dynamics of capitalism have a central position, by producing a strong uncertainty about the place and form of the political power.

In this framework, the information overload has favored the emergence of the figure of conspiracy, which constitutes the basis of Angie Bonino’s approach, by questionning the relevance of the official story and its mode of production. The artist takes on a political ontology which relies on a reality that would be distributed on a double level: the official one, at the surface, and a deeper level to which a serie of clues and evidence could lead.

The project “Tras las huellas del delito” gives a form to an ongoing investigation through an activist space that connects positions, speeches and hidden intentions: it aims at counteracting “the grammar of normality”, a set of rules that promotes the official story as the sole legitimate to deal with reality at a large scale.

Dynasty, gaps of a continuous. Jessica Salinas

Dynasty, gaps of a continuous, a proposal by [Jessica Salinas|http://jessicasalinas.tumblr.com alt=”jessica salinas], investigates the formal codes related to the reproduction mechanisms of social power. The exhibition display combines documents, architectural features and portraits that refers directly to the sociological question of reproduction and to its aesthetic manifestations. “Using images of portraits in small format paintings profiling specific social key characters, and projecting videos and documents that establish positions of corporate and institutional relationships, Jessica displays models of social reference for established power networks whose engagement strategies can be recognize, as well as the economic and cultural fields where such things happens.” (Francisco Benítez. February 2012.) Opening: March 27, 2013. 7 PM
