MIQUEL GARCÍA. When the world becomes lines

Proyecto site specific dentro del programa de soporte a artistas nacionales Invited

En el marco de LOOP Festival Barcelona

Del 19 al 27 de mayo de 2017

Inauguración: viernes 19 de mayo a las 19h

En 1760 el cartógrafo John Spilsbury inventó de forma casual el primer rompecabezas. Un día se le ocurrió pegar uno de sus mapas en una tablilla de madera y cortarlo siguiendo la línea de las fronteras.  Al moverlo se le cayeron varias piezas y al rehacerlo, se dio cuenta de lo laborioso que era encajar de nuevo los fragmentos del mapa. When the world becomes lines sitúa su punto de partida en el accidentado origen del puzle, tomando la representación del mundo para desplazarla, distorsionar su significado y producir un nuevo sentido sobre las múltiples líneas que traza la geografía.

A partir del vídeo y la instalación, Miquel García pone en el punto de mira el planeta para desmontar su representación gráfica y los símbolos de las sociedades que lo habitan. El mapamundis entendido como un juego difícil de resolver, la iconoclastia de la reinterpretación subjetiva de unos himnos y la comparación de la longitud de las fronteras  de los países del mundo proponen una aproximación irónica, pero profunda, a las cuestiones identitarias y territoriales que configuran el mundo actualmente.

 

Miquel García (Barcelona, 1975) es graduado en Bellas Artes por la Universidad de Barcelona y ha realizado diversas residencias en países como España, Brasil, Canadá y Corea, entre otros. Ha expuesto de manera colectiva e individual en espacios como el Centro Georges Pompidou de París, la Galeria Varmelho de São Paulo, el Casino de Luxemburgo, las Bienales de Marin (Turquia) y Turku (Finlandia), la Cooper Union de Nueva York, el Centro Cultural de Noain y el Museo de Arte Moderno de Tarragona.

Su trabajo explora líneas de investigación como la noción de espacio y territorio, el análisis de las estructuras económicas y de poder y las teorías contemporáneas sobre historia e identidad colectiva. Actualmente trabaja en un proyecto de publicación becado por la Fundación Guasch Coranty.

Tiempo de presión. Matteo Guidi 4/03/2017

MATTEO GUIDI. TIEMPO DE PRESIÓN

4 de marzo de 2017 / 18:30 – 21 h

 

Tiempo de presión se inscribe en la investigación sobre la alimentación en entornos altamente condicionados que Matteo Guidi desarrolla desde 2009, la cual le ha llevado a explorar, por ejemplo, las recursivas expresiones culinarias que se desarrollan en las prisiones.

El proyecto plantea una especulación narrativa que toma como punto de partida a La Reina, la olla a presión que Fidel Castro distribuyó ampliamente entre la población cubana como parte del Plan de ahorro energético de la isla, haciéndole prácticamente un distintivo nacional.

La gestión de la imagen pública del artefacto, a cargo del propio Fidel, sirve para desplegar un juego de resonancias entre idea de un comandante próximo, más cotidiano, y las relaciones de poder explícitas e implícitas en este gesto. La reina de la salsa -la exiliada cubana Celia Cruz- cantando al alimento, la idea del futuro y La Reina misma también intervienen en esta micro-historia en proceso.

Alex Brahim

 

Matteo Guidi (Cesena, Italia, 1978), artista, antropólogo social y profesor de Sociología de la Comunicación a la ISIA de Urbino, presentará en el marco del programa Invited su proyecto Tiempo de presión.

Las investigaciones artísticas de Guidi se sitúan en contextos complejos de estructuras sociales más o menos cerradas, como cárceles de máxima seguridad, fábricas y, más recientemente, los campos de refugiados del West Bank. Estos proyectos nacen de la curiosidad de entender las formas a través de las cuales los individuos (o grupos) gestionan su vida diaria dentro de sistemas delimitados que tienden a objetivarlos. Reflexionando sobre métodos impredecibles de resistencia cotidiana provocada por una combinación de simplicidad e ingenuidad, se centra en los contextos que se consideran marginales o excepcionales pero que, en realidad, anticipan escenarios más comunes.

PERIFERIA BLEND Andrea Gómez + Black Baltic + Troya Modet.

 

Periferia blend. Andrea Gomez
Blend Periphery is an exhibition that will be presented at Homesession thanks to me & the curiosity on November 4, 2015. This project aims to give shape to an action that took place at Hangar in June this year.

This action consisted of a screening of a video that compiles a series of video captures throughout by Second Life* seeking the limits of the settings, the periphery of these environments. The soundtrack for this video was produced during a live improvisation in front of the silent video projection and a 50 people audience, in collaboration with Black Baltic (Carlota Juncosa, Laura Llaneli, Andrea Gomez).

The exhibition Periphery Blend officially launches a limited edition vinyl featuring the result of the improvisation. The vinyl will be the center of a second action mash-up mode / live-set / blend mode, featuring Troya Modet at the opening.

This experiment is based on an open process and a methodological transgression.

*Second Life (abbreviated as SL) is a metaverse launched in june 2003, developed by Linden Lab, which is freely accessible from the Internet. Its users, known as “residents” can access SL using one of several interface programs called viewers (viewers), which allow them to interact with each other and explore the landscape and scenarios through an avatar.

Ryan Rivadeneyra. Piensa globalmente, actúa localmente.

ryan rivadeneyra homesession

Think globally, act locally is a term that was popularized in the early 70’s to promote horizontal organization of local communities, especially in relation to new ecological movements. However, from the 80’s and 90’s, some multinational companies used the slogan as an economic model for corporate expansion. The work to be presented at Homesession consists of an installation of drawings and sculptures with a performance of a series of monologues that deal with boredom, ambition, heartbreak, and perseverance through adversity.

Desertion of Ideological Circuits

Desertion of Ideological Circuits To perform this piece the artist __Martín Rico__ has extracted his fingerprints from the right hand through a process of scarification or skin removal. Extractions for each finger have been stuffed and framed for sale through an auction which will be held in Homesession __October the 1st at 19.00 h__. The project explores the possibility of pricing and marketing something that supposedly defines us as unique individuals. Moreover it questions the identity as something pre-checked and built by a number of institutions that guarantee certain social construction. The individuals do not produce their identity rather they assimilate them. Scarification sessions reveal the absurdity where there is a long and painful healing process that does not alter the fingerprint traces since they regrow exactly alike. This activity is part of the Pica i Fuig! program of the Sala d’Art Jove 2014

Orders of things, Ely Daou & Miguel Lope Inumerable

 

”Orders of things” gathers pieces by Lebanese artist Ely Daou and Filipino artist Miguel Lope Inumerable, in the framework of a collaboration with the international workshop of the Metáfora Art School in Barcelona. It focuses on our relation which what is already there and the way we try to both rely on this context and develop a higher autonomy.

Ely Daou’s sculptures and installation represent and generate conflicts with what our rationality assume as perennial evidence or stable order of things. Looking for how to approach the point where the stability is lost, Ely Daou works with the figure of risk as the one that provides a permanente bounce to our vital dynamics.

Normativity is a raw material of the work of Miguel Lope Inumerable, which is based mainly on drawing and expanded drawing. The installation Automation questions the set of guidelines that structures arts education and its scale of valuation. It opens thus a helpful crisis versus the belief in an established order and it does so with a subtle irony that significantly enhances its critical potential.

Opening: Friday, November 15th, 18h00-21h00

On view: November 15 (6-9 pm) and November 16 (5-7.30 pm)

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.

An attempt to make perceptible the imperceptible. Jordi Ferreiro.

“__[An attempt to make perceptible the imperceptible|/03_news/2012-12-12/jordi-ferreiro.html]__” has been conceived by __Jordi Ferreiro__ for his solo show at homesession as a site-specific installation that would change radically the perception of the exhibition space, while giving a form to different theories and thinkings that have investigated and understood the museum as a place for experience in the fields of the history of art, the institutionnal critique or the education.

__[Jordi Ferreiro|http://jordiferreiro.info/ alt=”jordi ferreiro]__ (Barcelona,1982) works between the lines that divide art and education using collaborative practices with people from different ages and backgrounds. His projects are presented as games to think, learn and have fun.
