La condició narrativa

18 December 2012 to 27 January 2013

Curated by Alexandra Laudo
La Capella, Barcelona

La condició narrativa sets out to pose a reflection on the construction mechanisms, distribution and consumption of narrations on the basis of the interaction between text (both oral and written) and image. The project is structured into an exhibition and a series of parallel actions in which eight contemporary creators take part.

The common ground

24th – 26th Feb, 2015

Private house, Madrid

Art and the inhabited space 
by Paul Smith-Schmidt

Breaking down the boundaries between public and private sphere, the Common Ground turns the interior of a home into a site for public scrutiny. Here art is merged within the everyday domestic space as a means to push the visitors to engage both physically and psychologically with the unfamiliar location they are confronted by, and to raise a possible questioning in regards to the context in which art is viewed nowadays. Throughout the visit, the public will have access to each room of the house, which will consequently differ from one another in relation to ambiance and space, hence becoming a location in which art is lived rather than simply viewed.

TransFashionLab

28 February to 26 April 2013

Franco de Toledo art projects, Barcelona.

A multidisciplinary exhibition which proposes different reflections about the body, in the context of the consumer society in which we live.
The works proposed by the artists explore the identity of human beings, starting from the exterior of the body to reveal internal questions, with the aim of giving meaning to apparently superficial preoccupations, which, depending on the culture, give very disparate readings and hierarchies, as for example: ideas of gender, socio-cultural and economic ideas.

The Tenth Stretch

6 to 27 Arpil 2013

Curated by Lorena Muñoz-Alonso
Jugada a 3 bandas, La New Gallery, Madrid

A few months ago we witnessed an end of the world that never happened. Or did it? Perhaps this so-called end is merely the progressive substitution of certain socio-economic models and the politics that sustain them. Taking as a starting point this metaphorical collapse, this heterogenous group of seven artists explore the subjects of apocalypse and rebirth through works in different media (installation, video, painting, drawing and collage) which address the idea of the end as the beginning of a new era. The evocative artworks gathered here examine a sense of chaos and fear which unfolds into renovation, understanding the uncertainties of the future ahead as something positive.

Pendulum

30 May to 11 July 2013
Performance: 8:30PM

Solo show. Franco de Toledo art projects, Barcelona

The exhibition explore themes of nomadism, frontiers and mutability by way of collage, performance and video-installations. Mariscal engages with these themes through experimentation with these materials based on the superimposition of diverse textures and surfaces, creating a new lexicon of symbolisms. In Mariscal’s practice the references to folding and reflection are abundant. The figure of the fold, which the artist applies as much to textile surfaces (Fuga, Oscillations), as to work in paper or glass (Untitled, Leche), is used as a device to study the tension between the body and the material and the idea of constant “becoming” of these elements.

VI Biennal de Jafre

10 and 11 Aug 2013

Curated by Carolina Grau and Mario Flecha

This year the theme is ‘Scatter the Manure’ a rural expression that can evoke the smell from the excrement that are thrown on the land in order to fertilize them. Using it as a metaphor for the current situation, link to the European economy defiant, the disbelieve on the politics, the destruction of the social benefit, leaves the citizens on a uncertainty. The option that remains is to transform the dryness land into productive spaces.

Music For Chameleons

2-10pm Sunday 6 July 2014

Group show, Summer Salon, London.

We are drinking iced mint tea sligthly flavoured with absinthe.

Three chameleons race one another across the terrace, one pauses at Madame’s feet, flicking its forked tongue, and she comments: “Chameleons. Such acceptional creatures. The way they change colour. Red. Yellow. Lime. Pink. Lavender. And did you know they are very fond of music?

Don’t you belive me?

She begins to perform a Mozart sonata.

Eventually the chameleons accumulated; a dozen, a dozen more, most of them green, some scarlet, some lavender. They skittered across the terrace and scampered into the salon, a sensitive, absorbed silence for the music played. and then not played, for suddenly she stood and stamped her foot, and the chameleons scattered like sparks from an exploding star.
