“On The Verges Of A Feeling Thing”

Zaratan is glad to invite for the opening of “On The Verges Of A Feeling Thing”, a flash exhibition by Bea Acevedo, artist-in-residency at Zaratan AIR, which presents a new body of works including sculpture, text and video.
The artistic practice of Bea Acevedo reflects on the relationship between materiality and subjectivity. How does our everyday contact with materials and their literal or metaphorical integration impact the perception of ourselves, the relationship with others and the environment? With this in mind she make use of materials of our constructed/synthetic environment to reference the bodily and the organic, usually through objects of fragmentary character that become reliant on each other and the space. These unfixed and exchangeable objects pose in wait and search, they construct a landscape of their own where the viewer becomes an object amongst them, aiming to trigger and question the nature of this encounter. For this residency at Zaratan she took as point of departure the relationship between corporeality and metropolis as outlined by Elisabeth Grosz in her essay ‘Bodies-Cities’. Exploring the skin of the city in its ornamental materiality, Bea Acevedo is reflecting on the porosity and exchange of inorganic and organic skin, each one with its loaded history.
