Paratext #64 with Ivonne Villamil, Huaqian Zhang and MATICS

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.

The next Paratext session will take place on Tuesday, May 24 at 6:30 p.m. in Hangar’s Sala Ricson.

Projects will be presented by:

Ivonne Villamil (Short-term residency)

Ivonne Villamil is an artist and researcher. Departing from the exploration of one of the components of Acoustic Ecology: geophony (or sounds of the earth), she currently works with listening devices and practices that are closely related to matter, memory and territory in Latin America. Her projects include different media such as installation, sculpture, drawing, sound art, audiovisual or performance; that create multiple narratives that address geopolitics, poetics and technology in the relationship between body and nature.

Huaqian Zhang (Short-term residency)

Huaqian (aka. waki) might call herself a speculative designer moving through a transdisciplinary field, as she usually gets confused and does not know when she is drawing patterns or planes, sewing or wiring, writing or filming; when living or dreaming.

Waki seeks to establish ties between art and design, understanding art as a world processor —from analytic incomes to disruptive outcomes—, and design as a translation of such expression to an endured and systematized dimension. Her execution method tends to be the micro-observation of everyday life and/or the macro-expansion of a fantasized fiction, searching for dumb ways to die and hidden ways to be alive.

MATICS Barcelona (Collective in residence)

MATICS Barcelona is a collective that was born in 2014 with the name “MATICS, society of performative studies” as a proposal for the meeting of people interested in digital arts in which to establish spaces for debate, action art and meetings for the creation of digital art as a collective. Gradually, MATICS has established itself as a non-profit digital art association and today is a space for diverse practices that, through the arts, seek to create community and social change. Artists, teachers, cultural producers, activists, technological and social researchers relate to each other to generate heterogeneous networks of production of unique projects and knowledge.


Attendance is free and will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
