On Sunday 14/1 at 14.00, 1646 will present Tracksuit Poem (Poema chándal), a new performance work by Raúl Hevia.
Within 1646’s collaboration with the artist-in-residence program Orbital Residency in Spain, the work is a public action that Raúl has developed during his residency at 1646 in the months of December and January.
The performance will allow a maximum amount of 15 participants, please reserve via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive details about the appointment and the event.
Raúl Hevia uses photography and video in his work, underlining the visual quality of written language, the moment in which the verbal turns into image. He focuses in his work on the way private life is narrated and the contemporary Self finds its forms of expression.
His work questions which mechanism of perversion can turn the private into a public act (performance), if private life is presented as a form of spectacle to the other. He reflects on how memory can turn each reality (each self) into fiction, or what relationships we establish between the content of ‘the archive’ and the perception of the present.
