Netherlands will be the guest country in ARCOmadrid 2012. With the active collaboration of the Mondriaan Foundation and the Embassy of the Netherlands in Spain, ARCOmadrid 2012 will present a selection of Dutch galleries curated by Xander Karskens, while also attracting all the country's major collectors, curators and critics.
At Arco Madrid 2012, Ellen de Bruijne Projects will be presenting work by Lara Almarcegui, Jeremiah Day and Falke Pisano.
For more information, please visit the gallery website.
Almarcegui renders visible what we otherwise fail to regard, see, register, or notice. She deconstructs in order to uncover, including a view of the utopia of the future. Her projects and interventions question the present state of the world of development and construction, and are designed to instigate a dialogue on the different elements that make up the ever-changing physical form of our urban landscapes.
Day's work questions of site and historical memory are explored through fractured narratives, employing photography, speech, and improvisational movement. As hybrid form of realism, Day appropriates historical incidents to serve as allegories and examples that might shed insight upon broader philosophical and political questions. It deals with problems of resistance, engaging concrete sites at the intersection between local and global history primarily through performance and photography.
Language, in both its communicative and performative dimension, is at the core of Falke Pisano's artistic practice. Departing from the premise that the part of an artists practice that is made public consist of moments of communication, whether it's an object, performance, text, talk or articulation of a position. Language figures as the privileged, inexhaustible medium to make artworks meaningful and significant.
Next to the fair Falke Pisano will give an performance lecture at Museo Reina Sofia.
