I am vertical

The Possibility of an Island
Gideonsson / Londré
Curated by
Alexandra Laudo

Lisa Gideonsson and Gustaf Londré are two Swedish visual artists who have worked as an artistic duo since 2009 under the name Gideonsson / Londré. Often, their work has a performative dimension and is based on the exploration of issues related to temporality, bodies and natural space, as well as the relationship between them. For Fundació Joan Miró's Espai 13, they are preparing a project that explores the idea of verticality and the effects, both physical and psychological, that human beings experience at very high altitudes, and how this set of bodily sensations stimulates or enhances physical and mental states of isolation and introspection. They also relate these effects to the ascetic tradition and to certain forms of spirituality that have historically developed in alpine regions and called for a life of isolation and seclusion.
