UNRECORDED

The perceptual re-construction of space is a continuous process, generated by diverse inputs such as our senses, memory, history, consciousness as well as technology. It is a process, consisting of momentary fragments, which are impossible to record. They are temporary, augmented, designed, and loaded.

“Unrecorded” exhibition looks at the notion of space as a decisive factor in our perception of the realities that surround us. The works of Kati London (US), Thomas Duc (France), Laila El-Haddad (Palestine), Dan Phiffer (US), Mushon Zer-Aviv (Israel), Daniel Garcia Andujar (Spain), Zhou Hongxiang (China), Banu Cennetoglu (Turkey), Negar Tahsili (Iran), Kate Armstrong (Canada), and Ali Taptik (Turkey) unfold and restructure all possible perceptual codes through their own inspections, observations, and approaches. They ask questions about the physicality of the space; content of mediatized spaces; clashes between realities and perception of spaces; spaces and situations, discharging information; and narrative spaces.

Creating a surrounding world

Hacklandscape

by Álvaro de los Ángeles, 2006

Arcades first appeared in Paris in the first third of the nineteenth century and became increasingly commonplace, as Walter Benjamin points out, with the growth of the textile trade, which marked the beginning of a hitherto unknown relationship between the inhabitant as a customer/buyer (user) and the city. Glass, iron, overhead light and artificial lighting -“The arcades were the setting for the first gas lighting,”‘ wrote Benjamin- covered entire blocks of buildings. This new architectural concept was in keeping with the period of change and the industrial revolution it formed part of. However, it also represented the ubiquity of a city inside a larger city, a clear attempt to create a “new” world inside a known one, while evoking the ideals of progress and well-being, albeit founded on a virtual idea, unreal or unattainable, that the physical and tangible world no longer seemed capable of generating or achieving.

PHotoEspaña prepara 63 exposiciones sobre naturaleza

F. S. – Madrid – 30/04/2006
El País

El 9º Festival Internacional de Fotografía y Artes Visuales, que se celebrará en Madrid del 1 de junio al 23 de julio, presentará 63 exposiciones de 375 artistas y creadores de 33 nacionalidades, en torno al tema de la naturaleza, entre los que figuran Olafur Eliasson, Ramón Masats, Karl Blossfeldt, Cristóbal Hara y Joel Sternfeld. El festival se extenderá a Toledo, con varias muestras; en Aranjuez se celebrarán unas jornadas, con clases de Hiroshi Sugimoto, y se rendirá homenaje a la cineasta Agnès Varda.

Las relaciones entre cultura y naturaleza es el tema propuesto por Horacio Fernández para la próxima edición de PhotoEspaña 2006 (www.phedigital.com), que cierra un ciclo como comisario general tras las anteriores dedicadas a la ciudad y a la historia. Las propuestas de los fotógrafos y artistas visuales se acercarán a una “reinterpretación del concepto de paisaje”, en donde intervienen “la memoria y los conflictos en una historia compleja”. Otras aportaciones se centrarán en el mundo rural, en un momento de cambio.
