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 in sculpture is articulated by repetitions. The deception of our perception emulates agitated states of consciousness in which the object abandons its solidity and movement appears to freeze. This point of departure leads us to question what we see and explore the blurred boundaries between action and representation.
