Lecture and Workshop with Luis Úrculo

Mon, Nov 12, 2018    4pm

Artist Luis Úrculo will lecture about his work and organize a workshop focusing on narrative construction and the moving image.

Luis Úrculo’s practice takes anthropology, archeology and criminology as a main reference of phenomenology to create lines of investigation based on the idea of reconstruction of timelines, interpretations, uncertain materiality, imprecise descriptions, ambiguity and interpretations of reality.

Fiction, and representation of diverse domestic geographies have been language and scenarios to create diverse video works, using amateur choreographies with objects to represent his ideas as manifestos.

His recent investigations are based on the idea of ‘karaoke’ , working with absence of lines of information to create new bodies of work where there always missing parts, images or explanations, to create a line of complicity with the viewer, who builds interpretations or reconstructions out of this pieces, as tourists, archeologist, or simple karaoke singers in a bar.

Urculo is also interested on a redefinition of the possible tools, procedures and formats within architecture. Mainly is an investigation focused on the representation and the narrative of the ‘invisible’ that defines the space. A work not so directly related with the gravity and weight, a value which has been a main unit to measure construction and its media impact on the last decades.

Organized by Anna Puigjaner in accordance with Core I Studio.
