(Creation Residence - Associate Project 2018 )L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà) From 30/01/2018 to 10/02/2018 David Climent, loscorderos-sc, Pere Jou, Sònia Gómez Casa is a meticulous exercise in broadening the crack that appear in our everyday reality and shake our little universes. It is a project that sees the hole as the most interesting part of the wall.
At home we always feel that reality is woven around us by everyone who is there in the same place. We inhabit a space and people it with meaning, sound and movement. What is more, we like to believe that this reality we create is natural and ontological, firm and stable. It is not. Every reality is merely apparent, relative and fragile, full of holes, tubular and often contradictory.
This sometimes hurts but is sometimes liberating. Sometimes it puts us in risky situations and sometimes it makes us beautifully strong. It is in the strange corners of everyday life that we have decided to take up residence, build our little bunker and see what happens. Our lives are full of tiny moments of ambiguity that pass before us so swiftly that we do not fully perceive them. Moments at which an unplanned movement of an eyebrow gives us away and reveals to the world that we have not understood anything of what has just been said to us, or when a general comment about the current fashion has caused us enormous offence. The scene continues to unfold regardless, however, and we carry on with our mutual validation. We keep going forwards because that’s how things work and who are we to change it now.
But what would happen if we were to decide to get into that moment. Where would it lead if we widened that crack and submerged ourselves in it as though it were a fractal?
