1 JUNE 21:00 H
21:00 Performance: CLÉDAT & PETITPIERRE
LES AUBES SONT NAVRANTES (The Dawns are Heartbreaking)
In their constant to-and-froing between sculpture and the performing arts, Clédat & Petitpierre build a protean and entertaining practice. With a heightened sense of studio-based work and control of fabrication techniques, in their recent works they propose activating sculptures through a dual perception: that of the exhibition and the more performative event, where the artists’ bodies are involved in a systematisation of the figure of the couple and of their territory.
21:30 Performative diaporama: ANTONIO FERREIRA
ENTROPION –BOSTON NAMING TEST– HYPERTROPHY MAMA
A performative diaporama is like a doubled-looped inverted ekphrasis: words blink and thoughts stutter. I click on a PDF because the PDF is the rhythm of the twenty-first century. This is a two-finger, two-lip and two-eye performance in which the arrows on the keyboard come and go obsessively. In these three diaporamas, certain anatomical and digital problems rhyme in a strabismus of concepts. Sugar-coated language expands until almost reaching academic rap, whispers that melt, aphasic ASMR, explosions of hardware and a little bit of conjunctivitis. In short, some diaporamas where the eyelid, the human body’s quickest muscle, is the ideal co-pilot.
Antonio Ferreira is an artist and doctorate student in Fine Arts at UCM. He published the book Palabra Parpadeo in 2016. In 2017 he took part in Apuntes para una psiquiatría destructiva, an exhibition curated by Alfredo Aracil (Sala de Arte Joven de la Comunidad de Madrid) and has received funding from Injuve for the ESTUDIO_ESCRITORIO curatorial project. He is also a vocalist in music projects like T I C S and Unknown Vudú.
