Paratext #52 ft. Brisa MP, Pablo Sanz, Sara Agudo and Mario Ciaramitaro

This name, Paratext, hides a monthly program of performances by artists in residence at Hangar as well as artists on exchange grants. 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 will later publish his or her impressions of the presentation on this blog. On this occasion, Caterina Almirall will be the editor.

The next Paratext session will take place on Wednesday, April 28 at 6 pm in Hangar’s Sala Ricson.

Projects will be presented by:

Brisa MP (Interaction Lab Residence Grant)

Transmedia artist, graduated in Visual Arts with studies in dance. Postgraduate in Visual Culture from the University of Barcelona and with a master degree in Technology and Aesthetics of Electronic Arts at UNTREF in Argentina.

Brisa MP has developed several researches about movement, from the cross between body-technology as a research space for new interactions and specific gestures from the human interaction-technological devices. She highlights the processes of artistic creation unveiling the technical procedures and collaboration. She manufactures her own tools and devices, giving special importance to the crafts, the recycling, the communities of free software-hardware in which she supports her work of the last years.

Her work encompasses multiple formats, ranging from video, installation, digital graphics to computer processes, electrochoreography, performance, site-specific works and reflective articles.

Pablo Sanz (Exchange grant between Hangar and Casa de Velázquez in collaboration with Institut Français Barcelona)

Pablo Sanz is an artist, composer and researcher currently based in Spain and Northern Ireland. His body of work includes site-determined and public art projects, immersive installations, multichannel live performances, exhibitions, releases, and pieces for broadcast and headphone listening. His practice is an open-ended investigation of listening, space-time, more-than-human agencies, aural vitality and otherness, with a focus on the limits and thresholds of perception and attention. Through a continuum of approaches, his environmental sound works explore the vibrant entanglements and creativity of human bodies, non-human creatures, energies, materials, spaces, and technologies, encouraging sensory ecological awareness. Listening becomes a political act, intended to resist dominant tendencies in contemporary societies, cultivating alternative forms of being and thinking.

Sara Agudo (Exchange grant between Hangar and Casa de Velázquez in collaboration with Institut Français Barcelona)

Graduated in Art and Design at the Escola Massana, she holds a Master in Artistic Production and Research at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona. Her artistic practice is based on research into perception and language. Crossing several disciplines, she makes interventions in space, installations, photographs and drawings understood as records that allow to record certain phenomena. Language is a relevant element in her work, understood as matter and as a way of amalgamating fragments of reality that can be expanded in installations and performances or compiled in publications and other media. She has recently exhibited at Casa de Velázquez, Chiquita Room, Errant, Àngels Barcelona, GlogauAir Berlin, Festival Panoràmic and Embarrat, among others. Her publication Un final has been selected by the Bob Calle Prix du livre d’artiste 2020.

Mario Ciaramitaro (Curator residency)

Mario Ciaramitaro is an interdisciplinary researcher in interface cultures, design cultures and visual arts. He has a comprehensive editorial experience, shaped by his involvement in tutoring students, designing publications with artists and curators, and in collaborative production models in self-organised frameworks.

His recent PhD dissertation The treason of the interface: a manifesto for critical design explores the core of interface ontology and why there were opportunities for persuasive technologies to shift the relationship between people and digital realities. The result is a call on radical procedures and design approaches that can lead to a public discussion and investigation of the digital future.

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.
