Concept

Pasajes. Viajes por el híper-espacio [Passages. Travels in Hyperspace] is a selection of works drawn from the collection of Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (T-B A21). Consisting primarily of large-scale sculptural or installation work, the exhibition will be designed so as to foster a contemplative stroll, making the body central to the visitor’s experience of art and offering a journey into a perceptual dimension that activates the physical, the sensory and the cerebral.

Whereas art has traditionally been a depiction of the world that we inhabit, thus focusing on the visual faculty, artists today tend to restage fragments of our environment, to trigger shifts in our understanding that invoke all the sensory and bodily registers and break down the paradigms of the viewing subject and the object of perception. Exploring new forms of perception, which weave together the “real” with the “virtual,” they produce stimulating experiences, triggering that which is unforeseen and unpredictable, not fully explainable or representable in terms of preexisting concepts or expectations.

This new horizon of experience is the result of processes of acceleration, the adaptability to new technologies, and the ability to negotiate change and innovation. Because our experience of the world is increasingly mediated, our sense of the real is all the more distorted by flows of information –whether images, texts, or sounds– continuously supplied by way of networked devices of every kind. A keen observation of the world no longer suffices to allow us to understand it in its complexity. Less decipherable parameters challenge that notion altogether.

In a way art suggests a new grid for understanding and relating to our environment. Works of art establish a narrative dimension that freely associates reality and fiction, an expanded reality of sorts.
