PRESS RELEASE: ENG | CAST | CAT

 [CAST] Fechas de la exposición: Gaby Felten: Not in an Emancipated Way > 11- 20 noviembre 2015.

Not in an Emancipated Way es una exposición conformada por una serie de trabajos que la artista Gaby Felten ha producido durante su residencia. Sus instalaciones, videos y esculturas reaccionan a su contexto y ambiente directo, respondiendo ingenuamente y con un enfoque práctico a la información visual de sus encuentros fortuitos con Barcelona. Ciertos elementos que se repiten en toda la ciudad - la plaza, la fuente pública, el sifón, la placa de la calle de mármol, el cartel del mendigo, el carrito de la compra de productos reciclados, la influencia de la cultura de América Latina o África, y muchos más - son los estímulos a los que Felten reacciona desde su posición en un contexto laboral globalizado occidental.

 

[ENG] Gaby Felten: Not in an Emancipated Way: 11- 20 November 2015.

Not in an Emancipated Way is an exhibition conformed by a series of works that artist Gaby Felten has produced during her residency. Felten’s installations, videos and sculptures react to her direct environment and context, naively responding to the visual input she happens upon in Barcelona with a hands-­on approach. Certain elements that are repeated throughout the city - the plaza, the public fountain, the sifon, the marble street sign, the beggar’s sign, the shopping trolley of recycled goods, the influence of Latin American and African culture and many more - are the stimuli for Felten to react from her position  as a provider of labor in the western globalized context.
