A mechanism that starts to work when it is used by a group of people who manipulate the moving spears fixed to the structure of an exhibition space, a mechanism that becomes the material to be worked on, as a kind of prolongation of the body, with which to try out new ways of occupying it with “deployments” that go from one side to the other.
gio bat, inauguration
Inauguration of GIO BAT, the stage in which concerns and opinions are voiced on the long-term project of the same name, developed by the artist Manu Uranga (Gio bat-Zabala, Gio bat-Txitxarro and Gio bat-Bulegoa z/b).
GIO BAT is based on a fixed element: a specific space (located on Calle Dos de Mayo 19) with the addition on this occasion of a dynamic component consisting of the disruptive and intermittent participation of artists who collaborated during previous stages of the project. It deals therefore with a body of action-intervention disseminated over time, with the idea of focusing on the relations involved in the production of all artistic practices, beyond questions of collaboration and curatorial logic.
