Reproductibilitat 2.2. colección olorVISUAL

Location: Planta 0

«Reproductibilitat 2.2. colección olorVISUAL» constitutes yet another step in this series which analyses the evolution of the moving image, the latest editions of which focussed on the pioneers of video art through the MACBA collection and the experimental films from Narcisa Hirsch’s works. The curatorial project developed by Nekane Aramburu includes a selection of works from the olorVISUAL collection allowing for the creation of an interrelation that is both generational and involves international creators of relevance today, highlighting the educational potential that lies at the origin of a collection which brings a new perspective to this collection: that of odour.

The exhibition discourse stresses how the dematerialisation of art and the practices that employed the technologies influenced the production of contemporary culture and the visual arts. In addition, the selected works serve to introduce us to the finds that sought out the temporary structure of audiovisual recordings, thus making progress on fundamental questions regarding the ontology of the gaze and the new relationships with spectators in the “odour” dimension.

Broaching a new, more contemporary period of video artists and research in new technologies from the 2000s on, in this way we shall delve deeper into the usage and consolidation of the video for present-day creative practices. It is not so much a technological leap as an approximation to a new enunciation, other ways of narrating and questioning spectators and decoding the creation.
