Open Space: Process on Stage
Presented by The Grey Space
As part of our Open Space residency program, choreographer Amparo González Sola deepens and explores her artistic practice in the presence of an audience. Open Space is a residency program that shows the artistic process as an ongoing exhibition.
Sola’s residency focuses on her work La Conspiración de las Formas (The Conspiracy of Forms). In this long-term project, she investigates the changing relationship between human and matter. It addresses the question how we relate to the world we built.
The space left to our entrance is the base from where Sola will work. The ingredients for the residency are 50 blocks of concrete, a number of tools, light and the human body. During the opening hours of The Grey Space you will encounter daily changing residue and remains of the intensive days she will spend practicing with two dancers. Continuously updated personal video messages, capturing bits and pieces from the process, are presented in the space.
The installation can be viewed during our regular opening hours
This Spring, choreographer Amparo González Sola is our Open Space resident. During this residency, which is open to the public, Sola further develops her artistic practice focused on examining the transformational relationship between man and matter.
