Wheels of Desire. Gabrielle Le Bayon

"Art Will not disappear into nothingness; it will disappear into everything. " Julio Garcia Espinosa, Imperfect Cinema.

Wheels of Desire is the project that has been developed by Gabrielle Le Bayon during her residency at Homesession. The project focuses on the relation between the daily production and consumption of images on one hand, and our own relationship to reality and to our physical, geographical and metaphorical environment on the other hand. The artist statement underlines that “billions of pictures orbit in cyber space. Together they form a sentence that speaks a collective and communal, personal and informal meaning. Neither original nor immortal, they are the flow of time and swirls of thousands of individual realities and personal truths.” The project, based on the own accumulative practice of the artist, questions the way this hyper consumption shape the physical and conceptual places with which we connect.

The Evidence of Things Not Seen.

"The Evidence of Things Not Seen". Damaso Reyes & Diane Sylvester

The manifestation of faith or rather, its performance as evidence of the unknowable is the starting point for Damaso Reyes & Diane Sylvester's exhibition “The Evidence of Things Not Seen.” The show explores how belief is experienced by individuals and groups in The United States and Europe as well as the dialectic between its intimate nature and the more expansive community that faith builds through the external presentation of internal experiences.

Diane Sylvester's video installation “Jesus Man” documents the steps of an individual who has become over the course of twenty years both a local institution and a street evangelist. Through his daily routine “Jesus Man” is a catalyst of community for what would otherwise be a disconnected and isolated collection of individuals in New York's Manhattan Valley neighborhood. Through this visual and aural experience Diane shares the ritual nature of a religious “performance” that over time exceeds its spiritual starting point.

Damaso Reyes presents an audio and photographic work “Speaking in Tongues” which is based on two years of documentary research examining the rites of Pentecostal churches in Catalonia, England and Ukraine. The images and sound explored how deeply personal and transcendental experiences of prayer is manifested in public expressions of faith. His still images from Spain, England and Ukraine are juxtaposed with the recorded sounds of Pentecostal worship services in Catalonia to allow the audience to temporarily witness how this faith is experienced by some of its most devout adherents.

Your milk eyes: open. Anna Sebastian


Homesession is happy to invite you to the opening of "Your milk eyes: open", an exhibition by resident artist Anna Sebastian. Her works draw on familiar scenes, based a priori on the codes and parameters of daily life, including nevertheless variations that suggest to the viewer an evocation of uncertain fictions. Anna Sebastian uses the pictorial space as a surface for the inscription of an open working process, based on a composition of images inspired by literary and cinematic sources. This sets up a tension in the paintings; the obsessive and aporetic isolation of figures, which are subordinated to the reality of the medium, produces a dissension with the interpretative indetermination creating a distance between figures and their materiality. This sets them in a space of possibilities to which both dream and dys-functional reality leads.

Anna Sebastian (Londres, 1990) has been studying at Goldsmith College and at St Martins College, in London. Her work has been shown in different galleries in the UK (such as 5th Base Gallery-Bricklane or Islington Arts Factory) as well as Europe (HBFK Hamburg or DOX Art center Prague). This is her first exhibition in Spain.

Opening: Friday, July 12 - 2013, 19h30

Exhibition: 13/07 -> 20/07 I Wed->Sat, 17:00-19:30

WE'RE OPENING A NEW SPACE!

Since we started Homesession in 2007, we curated 15 artist residencies and produced 30 projects, most of them specially conceived for a domestic place, our home. This has been a really exciting and intense experience to live and share.



That's why we're very glad to open a new space in Barcelona, thanks to which we're going to foster and develop the work we've been realizing till now: residencies and specific exhibition projects. We'll go on using our domestic place as an atypical context for art project. Both locations are actually conceived as complementary and offer from now on the opportunity to receive more residents and increase the visibility and support to the barcelonese emergent art scene, as a non-profit project.



The next project and first exhibition in this new space will be a collective show featuring artists from Barcelona. Stay tuned and save the date: Thursday, April 26, Poble Sec area, Barcelona!

Adam Davis will present his work on Sunday August 22th

Adam Davis will present his work on Sunday August 22th @ homesession (7 PM Barcelona).

Los Angeles based artist Adam Davis explores a variety of themes that goes from body politics to metaphysics. Part of his work tackles with the notion of manifest masculinity, with accepted and expected male behavior or expressions thereof, relating cultural symbolic system and the assets it sustains. The link between masculinity-in-context and social representations has led Adam Davis to deal with the question of structural dominations in the social relations: comparing both cultural and economic domination’s schemes of internalized rejections and fantasies, the artist focuses on the way different kinds of narrations get interwoven and interact mutually.
. Would metaphysics be a better field for universality and permanence? Adam Davis’ recent works question the representations, aspirations and values given to a possible experience beyond the physical universe. With this new perspectives that certainly enlighten the most melancholic features of his works, Adam Davis goes on working and language and its structures as well as the most ethereal aspects of our fantasies.

Adam Davis, 12th resident at homesession, will present the guidelines of his works as well as the recent developments he’s been working on at Makan Project Residency (Amman, Jordan) and homesession.
