Tensión y Precariedad

BY SANTIAGO REYES VILLAVECES
@ VOL 12 ON APR 16, 2015

Santiago Reyes Villaveces showcases his work, which, according to his own words, "responds to an inquiry, obsession, fascination, and pleasure for the structures, assemblages and dynamics that evidence the state of transitivity and precariousness that appeal to a state of temporal indetermination. The works —installations, sculpture, drawings and photographs— transform, determine, modify and interfere the space in which they operate; affect the way the spectator occupies and perceive the physical and social space where is the work".

C A M P O

@ VOL 12 ON APR 16, 2015

"CAMPO" means countryside in Spanish. But also field. Yet, the project presented by Felipe Guerra is about an even broader meaning: it is about issues concerning both the contemporary arts and architecure, like space, how it's shaped and how it shapes us.

The Garden Of Paper Delights

BY JARDÍN PUBLICACIONES
@ VOL 12 ON APR 16, 2015

Overcoming an acute case of shyness, Andrea Triana bravely presented some of the most delicious fruits harvested at Jardín Publicaciones, an independent publishing house focusing on contemporary art which, paradoxically enough, displays boldness and risk in both contents and form.

The Speed of Light

BY LINA MARÍA VELANDIA
@ VOL 12 ON APR 16, 2015

Photography in the digital era seems like this endless pursuit of humankind to grasp time, in the fastest possible way. But for Lina María Velandia, taking pictures or drawing is more about image-making, no matter how long it may take.

PhytagoraSwitching

BY ENDE ESTUDIO DE CONTENIDO AUDIOVISUAL
@ VOL 12 ON APR 16, 2015

Laura Pombo and Juan Daniel Caro's audio-visual work is all about making contents to convey concepts as wide and complex as "education" or "art". Their beautiful Goldberg machine provoked a burst of applause in the audience and left everyone thinking how lazy the rest of us really are in comparison.
