Posizio dialektikoa = La posición dialéctica = The dialectic position
Residency for local and non local agents for the development of a project 2016
Almost opposing methodologies. How are these two ways of being expressed? What does this dialectic produce? These are some of the questions we consider together. In this project we try to unite and relate our work. The tools are sound and text. The proposal is to think of sculpture as song, and a song as a sculpture that we compose together.
Maite Vélaz: “My practice lies in simplifying. Handing all the possible contents, complexifying. Concentrating on listening to music determines the production of objects, shapes and images. Going through all these accumulated materials, opening them out and adding layers, structuring them, ordering them, superimposing them and establishing analogies. The most material production will emerge when everything is directed towards communicating. Then I create possible productions thinking about ways of displaying the process, what the process is.”
Sandra Cuesta: “Knowing what it is and concealing it, throwing everything over it to subsequently reveal it. I stress the manual aspect, and the way in which the material is treated as an assembly. I am interested in any preparation from a sculptural point of view that includes going about things in a roundabout way to look at things kaleidoscopically, from different angles. I apply the change in perspective through the use of different media, such as video, photography, drawing and sound. I am interested in dealing with the characteristic elements of each medium, and what can emerge at the junction between them. The cracks. I introduce text into the process like the lyrics of songs that do not exist and that amplify the meaning of what I propose as form.”
