Revolver Galeria, Lima, Perú
Curated by Silvana Lagos
Non-Space, group exhibition, showing 10 artists from Sweden and Peru curated by Silvana Lagos
Revolver Galeria, takes over a dis-used 1954 commercial space in the city centre of Lima Peru. A building that faces onto the Presidential Palace, the colourful broken collage of unauthorised settlements as a backdrop, and presents its inaugural exhibition in its new exhibition location - “non-space”.
The exhibition, explores the notion of “non-space” from a philosophical and political point of departure. Within every structural instability, the perception of ‘fold’, be it perceptual or literal emerges into a “non-space”. Be it through the filters of perception, and the entrancing pulsating stop motion video work by Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, where a monochromatic waterfall greets you and slowly tries to break you away from mundanity, the variations a study of reality and how we see reality, further questioning what reality is, or the monotonous, sound work by Jose Carlos Martinat that numbingly repeats the internet definition of “space”, ensuring that you stay within the same frameworks, over and over again, a tannoy announcement over the presidential square.
Ilja Karilampis work restructuring the over consumption of the day to day advertorial language and creating a vibrant actively reactional hybrid half way between warning signs, and new census readings.
How much of the realities that we have created and are confined within our pre-existing frameworks, form our day to day realities and interactions. The exhibition expands on the importance and impact of the non-space as an artistic language and tool. The non-space of the endless infinite.
