untranquil now: a constellation of narratives and resonances

artistic gestures, configurations, performances and projections

With untranquil now, attention is focused on artworks, artefacts, performances, figures and events, that authorize complexity, in which bodies and modes of perception become the agents of contradictory states and troubled histories. Doing so, they disarm configurations of power, unlocking imagination to explore heterogeneous narratives. These artistic and performative gestures bank on a creative breakthrough of the world.

Being transdisciplinary, the exhibition and performance & film program present artworks that explore forms of displacement of stage, becoming modernist building, social housing, roof, public place, park, abandoned site, archaeological excavation, industrial platform, and the presence of human or animal characters.

Proposing a web of historical resonances or coincidences, a multiplicity of situated contexts and spatio-sensorial experiences influenced by political and social circumstances, the exhibition establishes relations to memory, heritage, and intimacy. It brings to the surface historic sediments to propagate their effects. Doing so, in various regimes of intensity, it evokes “contrapuntal consciousness” (E. Said), and how art does justice to the event, in attempting to restore its intensive potential.
