Paratext #48 feat. Yunju Park, K I M + I L L I, Arash Fayez and Óscar Martín

This name, Paratext, hides a monthly schedule of presentations of artists residing in Hangar of long and short duration, as well as international residencies. In it they present, in different formats, specific projects or parts of their work. The sessions are always open to the public with the purpose of enabling interaction with the artists themselves. Each Paratext also has an editor who subsequently publishes his or her impressions of the presentation on this blog. On this occasion, Marc Mela will be in charge of the editing.

The next Paratext session will take place on Wednesday, October 28, at 7 p.m. at the Sala Ricson, in Hangar.

Projects will be presented by:

Yunju Park

Yunju Park holds her MFA degree in Public Art and New Art Strategies from Bauhaus University in Germany. She works research-based from intervening in public space, site-specific analysis for understanding the coexisted-structure under differences in the historical, social, political, and cultural context. ‘Objects in motion_directivity and weight’ is the main subject to approach individual stories in the public realm to share and how to engage by artistic action. Her interest is objects-embodiments performing and representing their own vitality in different dimensional ways, between public and private space, internet and virtual realm, etc.

She uses different media such as public performance, installation, architecture, 3D modeling, narrative text, fieldwork, and digital media. Here, those media work as tools for performative embodiment of the context of sociology, anthropology, and fictional narratives. The use of the methodology is extended from public-sites though the internet realm to AR (augmented reality).

K I M + I L L I

K I M + I L L I is a multidisciplinary collaboration formed in 2020 as a ‘virtual’ platform between Seoul and Stuttgart that aims to merge individual backgrounds of various working methodologies “in and outside” the realms of (im)materiality: visuality, sound, and space — focusing on research, finding intersections, sharing and expanding knowledge, expertise, and networks in the global context, and discursive activities within local communities. The collective believes in the antithetical possibilities of collaborative work, which accelerates a creative process, strengthens conceptual approaches to actual culture production that ties our perception of relationships.

Arash Fayez

Arash Fayez (originally known as Faeiz) is an interdisciplinary artist working with live situations, videos, and text-based works. Employing parafictional strategies, his practice explores notions ofin-betweenness in relation to displacement and statelessness. Fayez has exhibited and performed at venues such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Musée du quai Branly, Paris; the British Museum, London; the Queens Museum, New York; and the Wattis Institute, San Francisco.

Óscar Martín

Artist, independent researcher and programmer working in the field of algorithmic poetic and the study of generative and chaotic systems. His artistic practice could be understood as a “polyhedric” device of knowledge that hybridized and confluenced art, science and technology from an experimental, unorthodox and critical approach. Martin’s works of art are based on the development of generative systems composed of non-human agents (machines, biological, algorithmic) and their interactions and “agencies”, using as main output sound and light. From the sound aspect of his work Martin proposes an active listening and expansion of our perception through the physical-acoustic experience of emergence behavior in the limits of the chaotic and order structures.


The event will be carried out following all security measures. Attendance is free of charge and will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
