Mercedes Pimiento, Antonio R. Montesinos

The city can be perceived as a metabolic system: as a set of streams of organic and inorganic matter that move and nourish it through a regulated and complex network of structures and conduits.
This proposal reflects on the procecedures of interchange of resources between the body, the city and the logistic structures that hold it together.

 

In Superficie neutra (Neutral Surface) Mercedes Pimiento investigates the forms of imbrication of the body in the city environment, understanding this relationsjip as a continuous system of materials in movement. To achieve this the artist works with a mixture of bees and paraffin waxes that are liquified and solidified and adapted into diferent types of containers that allow their distribution. This results in the creation of a system of modular objects that interact and are measured in proportion to the body.

 

Antonio R. Montesinos presents a series of pieces using photography to document metallic objects such as bollards, wrought-iron grilles or railings.

 

These elements guide -hindering at times and offering support at others- our city experience, directing the flow of our bodies through the city. The iron holders for the photographs emulate the different shapes documented.
Both projects approximate the encounters of body and architecture, recognizing the passage of our bodies as just another flow of matter through the metabolic system of the city.
