The History of Velocity
PEDRO GÒMEZ-EGANA (COL/NO)
Preview AUG. 21. 2015 / 7-9pm
The artist makes sculptures that move and stage them in very specific ways. He devices immersive experiences where the audience enters a purpose-built space, or a carefully crafted environment, and he makes objects that are transformed through their attention. The question of how the performative aspect of sculpture constructs a sense of time is central to his artistic practice. Gómez-Egaña’s installations and performance-based works have been staged at various art events such as the Bergen Triennial, Performa 13 in New York, Kunsthall Mulhouse in France, the Marrakech Biennial, and the Brussels Biennial.
