Event 14 Feb — 14 Feb 19

Cluster

Felipe Villamil

Cluster consists of twelve velcro and fabric overalls and departs from the premise of creating an interactive sound sculpture. The visitors wear the pieces and voluntarily stick, making it difficult for their bodies to separate, thus creating an unintended choreography and sound piece. The suits may act like conjunctions in language, in this case uniting not only ideas, but bodies, into new compositions that blur the limits between one and other, also presenting tensions and distentions.

The piece by Luis Felipe Villamil (Bogotá, 1991) is presented at Lagos on the occasion of hosting a franchise of MALL, an experimental store that gathers clothing that are byproducts of art projects and that inserts itself into the logics of “ready-to-wear”. MALL is presented in collaboration with PAPI as a part of a program that invites artists, agents and self-organized projects from Latin America. It gathers works by more than 30 artists from the Americas and will remain open until February 23, 2019.

EVENT: Thursday, February 14 at 7:00PM
