Paratext #23 with Alejandra Avilés and Paula Bruna

February 14th 2018 / De 19h a 20'30h - Hangar

Paratext hides a monthly program of presentations by artists in residency in Hangar, always on Wednesday from 7 pm to 9.30 pm. Several artists present in various formats specific projects or parts of their works. The meetings are always opened based to the public in order to enable interaction with the artists themselves.

Next session will take place on Wednesday, February 14th at 7 pm in Hangar at Ricson space.

The following artists will present their work:

Alejandra Avilés

In her projects she takes as a starting point the narratives derived from the migration of her family to work in the Revolución Verde in Sonora, the Mexican state from which she originates. During the first half of the twentieth century hectares of vegetation were converted to monoculture fields. It is from this process that she reflects on concepts such as poison and land, dismantling and reproduction, the uniform and the singular. She uses materials, interventions, installations and drawings to explain the nuances that arise from the ideals of progress, revolution and natural abundance.

Paula Bruna

Paula Bruna’s artistic research stems from the study of the conflict between a society based on economic growth and the limited nature of the medium that sustains it. Taking as a reference concepts of ecology, sustainability and ecological economy, Paula is interested in the games of tensions between society and the environment and the process of collapse in all its phases (from the instability of equilibrium prior to the post -colapso scenario). In her installations she uses everyday elements to represent and investigate these issues in the form of visual poetry. In her latest projects, she investigates the conformation of the anthropocene narrative from a non-human point of view, in a broader ecosystemic conception exercise.
