Desertion of Ideological Circuits

Desertion of Ideological Circuits

To perform this piece the artist Martín Rico has extracted his fingerprints from the right hand through a process of scarification or skin removal. Extractions for each finger have been stuffed and framed for sale through an auction which will be held in Homesession October the 1st at 19.00 h.

The project explores the possibility of pricing and marketing something that supposedly defines us as unique individuals. Moreover it questions the identity as something pre-checked and built by a number of institutions that guarantee certain social construction. The individuals do not produce their identity rather they assimilate them. Scarification sessions reveal the absurdity where there is a long and painful healing process that does not alter the fingerprint traces since they regrow exactly alike.

This activity is part of the Pica i Fuig! program of the Sala d'Art Jove 2014

Sunita Prasad. artist talk.

We are glad to invite you to meet Sunita Prasad, artist in residency at Homesession during March and April: she will present her current projects and will show a selection of videos.

Sunita Prasad's projects draw from her research on social histories and multiple publics, while inserting heightened fictional elements or hyperbolized versions back into those histories and communities online and in public space. She has a special interest in works that are activated live and in physical touch. Based in Brooklyn, New York, Sunita is originally from Syracuse NY and received a BFA in Film & TV from New York University and an MFA in Photography from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her works have been shown in galleries, festivals, and performance venues internationally.

This event is part of the festival Miradas de mujeres.

Homesession, C/ Creu dels Molers 15. 08004 Barcelona

Una de las primeras mañanas, a project by Julia Gorostidi.

Following the PRE-. group exhibition, we open now the first chapter of the InvitedOneDay 2012 programme with the project of Julia Gorostidi (Switzerland / Spain 1983).
Away from the practice of archive displayed in the projects "oneofthem" or "HowTo" Julia Gorostidi proposes a project and performative installation nature around the act of creation. "One of the first morning" is based of a book from the 80' that collects cosmogonies from various sources in the form of narrative disclosure: thanks to a small-scale staging of the interrelationships and forms of language resources present in these mythologies, Julia Gorostidi moves the original metanarrative to the exhibition's room and the creative process. The artist offers to the public a unique opening in which the project will take shape through a series of actions related to the constituent elements of the installation in progress.
With the collaboration of Paul Gorostidi.

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.
