Solo show “Sobre el cuerpo y sus imprecisiones” (About the body and its inaccuracies) at Sala WTA, Barcelona, 20.10.2016 - 20.11.2016
The human body looks astonishing soft and imprecise when confronted with the accurate and rigorous geometry of walls, floors and ceilings. As intersection between feet and legs, hands and arms, torso and head, the articulations determine to a great extent the position and precision of the body in relation to its environment. This project focuses on the concept of imprecision of the body and consists on a collection of objects made of latex, which correspond to the remaining gap between each body’s articulation and two walls forming a right angle. The inaccuracies of our human figure become thereby tangible material, extensions of the body, similar to prosthesis for knees, elbows or wrists.
