Achæoscillator displays the drastic weather conditions of the southernmost island in the world on a virtualized representation of the end/beginning of the Americas. A one-person experience, where the research presents traces and connections between the ancestors of the Yagán community, the Kawesqar and Selk’nam and the Antarctic, Scotia and South America continental plates, offering an inestimable and uncontrollable source of Gaia’s power.
Víctor Mazón Gardoqui (ES/DE)
Mazon Gardoqui´s work exposes the unheard and unseen, addressing the inaccessible and experiencing vulnerability and awareness on the viewer. Perception and altered states are key concepts on his performances through the use of sound or light. His work materializes in three main fields: actions or site-specific performances through experimental processes, exhibitions as consequences of previous actions and collaborative works through seminars to form a communal dialog. His practice explores amplification, electromagnetic phenomena and images of invisible fields by using locative audio and custom electronics.
Nicolas Spencer (CL/AT)
His work focuses on ways of understanding nature in all the depth and complexity. His installations mix the massiveness of its components (rocks, metals, gravity, wind, etc.) with the fragility and immateriality of sound.
Spencer’s artistic practice is contaminating (and contaminated by) other areas of knowledge as a way of generating alternative epistemological and aesthetic perspectives.
