Crines, with Lucía C. Pino

Next Saturday, 9 December, at 12 noon, we present the book Crines by Lucía C. Pino, published by Caniche Editorial. We will read together, aloud and silently. Whole paragraphs or diagonally. Sitting, lying down, leaning. We will make a playlist, listen to it, comment on it. We will practise a little what the expression “tense a la crines” implies. In other words, we will help each other as much as possible not to fall off our feet… In a capriole-without-end.

In this work, Lucía delves into the political dimension of the night, a space and a place through which characters fabricated from reality and otherness pass, balancing fear, desire, class, gender and race. In Crines – an exercise in somatic writing that straddles poetry and narrative – precarity, loss and borderline survival invade everything, bright as lamé and glitter, dark as a window from which the sky cannot be seen. “Everything is body, architecture and text,” they write on a piece of silk paper they carry in their pockets, counting their steps in kilometres of urban journeys that activate words, intersections and transformations.

Lucía C. Pino is an artist and writer. They investigate sensuality and desire as emancipatory and transformative tools with a focus on sculpture. Their practice tries to join processes that underline diverse aesthetic and meaning potentialities, pointing towards the capacity of any entity to mutate and transform itself.
