Pliegues y Despliegues 2018

24 May - 02 June 2018
(Bogotá, Colombia)
AC/E supports in this fifth edition, within the framework of the Spain-Colombia Culture Focus, the guest artist-researcher Ignacio de Antonio, with the work "What we no longer see - This is no longer seen", an innovative proposal of choreographic research on censorship and its relation to bodies and things. The fifth edition of the Festival revolves around the infinite possibilities of the unfinished, that is, the idea of expanding the notion of work, as the only product of artistic practice. The artists of this edition participate to unfold, dismantle, unveil, open their processes, go out on the street, inviting viewers to feel affection, discover new artistic and existential movements, and a few days of intense vitality. Pliegues y despliegues was born in 2013 as an initiative of a small group of artists, whose creative projects were not fitted in the traditional platforms for performing arts. With the aim to consolidate in Colombia and Latin America a place of enunciation and debate on creative dislocated dynamics, without precise location and of liminal character. These artists work at the task of spin networks with other creators who come to the interdisciplinary as the possibility of creation and research, even as way of being in the world.

'System Recovery'. Assembly Point

'System Recovery'. Assembly Point

18 May - 23 June 2018
Assembly Point (Londres, United Kingdom)
Assembly Point presents System Recovery, a new body of work by Fran Meana with the support of AC/E. The exhibition, Meana’s first solo project in the UK, is an exploration of the possibilities offered by digital tools to reactivate the recent past. For this project the artist has recruited the help of a neural network – a type of machine learning algorithm – to explore the legacy of El Laboratorio de Formas; a proto-think tank established in the early sixties by a pioneering group of Galician artists. Trained using their writings, the algorithm will help Meana navigate the complex legacy of this former collective. Together, artist and machine will reactivate the group’s production and research, mining their vast archive of local culture, that includes studies of ancient rock engravings, pagan ritual masks, and ceramic homewares. Using new technologies and rapid prototyping System Recovery seeks to bring contemporary ideas and new life to the work of El Laboratorio de Formas. Fran Meana (Asturias, ES) is an artist based in London. Recent exhibitions include Generaciones 2018, La Casa Encendida, Madrid, ES (2018), Tender Buttons, Salón, Madrid, ES (2017), Future Archaeologies, SCAN, London, UK and Laboral, Gijón, ES (both 2016), 1.000 Horsepower, Can Trinxet, Hospitalet, ES (2016), Labour, Motion and Machinery, TENT, Rotterdam, NL (2015), Machines for Hardrock, Avalanche, London, UK (2015) and Percussive Hunter, Akbank Sanat, Istanbul, TR (2015).
