To support and offer the opportunity of expressing locally based artists and curators’ inventive voices, Life, the 10th edition, of Pop Kino festival is this month’s invited Project Space guest exhibition with “SELF(fish)”.
SELF(fish) is the symbiotic outcome of the three art pieces created by Sara Ferrer, Irene Cruz and Matthieu Ranc. This kind of oniric exploration invites us to do a reflection on the unconscious state of the society. During the sleep, humans go through an unconscious phase, which leads to a state of absolute vulnerability, when everything around us fades into the background. In this stage, we are not even able to react to external stimulus. In this ingenious installation, a symbiotic complementarity can be seen between the three disciplines. Sara Ferrer express this idea through the allusion to fishes, with the intention of returning to the origin of species, to that period when all animals were aquatic organisms. Irene Cruz wants to take us through video art to a non-palpable lyrical world tinted in a bluish, dim and transcendental light, aiming to reconnect us with nature and therefore our origins. Last but not least, Matthieu Ranc will guide us to a moment of trance with his live music performance by using synthetic sounds and creating loops, destroying with this all organic basis.
