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

PRE-.

In celebration of our new space, Homesession invites you to attend it's first exhibition, PRE-.

PRE-. is a collective exhibition conceived as a prelude to solo projects that each artist will develop throughout 2012 at homesession. The project formalizes a point of progress, a state prior to the individual proposal, and is intended as a study of possibilities. The format of the exhibition facilitates a dialogue between projects, while simultaneously broadening perspectives and creating autonomous spaces.

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!

Cháchara. 2012/02/09



EN

Cháchara describes itself as "a talk at a given place and time". Homesession is glad to be this given place and to receive, with Cháchara's organizers, three British artists on Thursday, February 9: Maurice Carlin, Gary Leddington and David Price share an afternoon with us, just at the beginning of their residency at La Escocesa, to talk about their interests.

Like in every Cháchara, we invite people to share things that don't relate with their practice at all (or maybe they do) and we'll spend the afternoon eating delicious quiches.

Cháchara es defineix com "una xerrada en algún lloc i en algún moment". Homesession té el plaer de ser aquest lloc i, amb els organitzadors de Cháchara, d'acollir dijous 9 de febrer a tres artistes britànics: Maurice Carlin, Gary Leddington i David Price ens acompanyen una tarda per parlar dels seus interessos, aprofitant l'inici de la seva residència a La Escocesa.

Com per les altres chácharas, invitem la gent a compartir algunes coses que no tinguin que veure amb allò seu (o potser sí) i passarem la tarda compartint delicioses quiche!

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.
