For the third consecutive year, Roca and MUTEK ES strengthen their union by kicking off the festival with the program: Sculpted with Light & Sound. The series explores how the limits and material possibilities of sound and light not only condition our perception of space, but also create new spaces.
For the hybrid edition of MUTEK ES+AR, the Canadian artist Sabina Ratté will be present virtually in a talk in which she will unveil her audiovisual piece 'Undream' with which she will intervene for a week at the Roca Barcelona Gallery. "Undream" represents an imagined future in which utopia and dystopia collide, inspired by the photomontages of Superstudio, a major force in the radical architecture and design movement of the late sixties. 'Undream' leads the viewer through an isolated landscape dominated by a monumental structure. The architecture moves between impossible surfaces and the underlying order, interfering with the landscape as it moves in and out of existence.
The work #OBJ 1 by the collective Na. B3 collective, this installation explores the ephemerality of this border and with it the individuality of the object. The size, the structure, the opacity or the character of the content of the object are degrees of this independence from the uncertainty of the rest of the world.
