Turn it all turns is an educational project and series of four exhibitions that focuses on a range of processes and protocols that enable us to understand, relate to and experiment with our immediate surroundings. By playing with languages and meanings, the series aims to throw up critical insights that make us question the codes that shape our perception.
The participating artists all eagerly eschew perfunctory responses and have created their projects by applying subtle variations to familiar, recognisable objects and ideas with an eye on shaking things up.
Laia Estruch works with the voice as an extension of the body that can combine issues linked to language, gender and social structures. In Crawl they come together in a swimming pool: an unstable setting that becomes a laboratory for sound experiments.
Julia Spínola’s work forces spectators to rethink some of their assumptions about perception. Placed halfway between the fact of making themselves and that of undoing themselves, her pieces expose a conflict with the idea of permanence and the condition of the closed object.
The starting point for these artists involves two differentiated perceptive paradigms, as they explore communicative forms that work without the object and strategies of persuasion that are disseminated with no apparent reason.
