Gimnástica

Fernando Gutiérrez

5 March 2015

Site-specific project

Built using a series of elemental, dubitative black strokes, Fernando Gutiérrez’s (Oviedo, 1973) figures overstep the boundaries of the space they occupy in the hall thanks to the line that transmutes their mutant forms, borrowed from a multitude of different bodies, into an organism; a living form that moves throughout the space, and even interacts with its fellows, turning the projection screen into an expanded place that transcends such conventions as frontality.

As a whole, over and above their individual particularities, the compositions construct a spectral space where the figures    appear and disappear, and somehow return the animation to its original sphere, in the realm of magic, phantasmagoria and other funfair animations.
