Helena vinent

Espai 13

Exhibition program
We will keep each other company when it grows dark
Espai 13
Curated by
Irina Mutt

The Barcelona-born artist Helena Vinent will create a space in which fiction and reality cease to be excluding binarisms. She will be taking over Espai 13 by bursting into the exhibition room and turning her attention to the issue of accessibility, and activating in it ideas and concepts to do with access, pleasure and desire. How do we enter Espai 13? Is it a different experience for every visitor? The artist has no intention of asking for permission to be there, nor does she aim to adapt to the dominant ableist system. The system will be assaulted and brought to a halt. The installation proposed by Vinent will generate situated actions of desiring and desirable bodies that question ableist expectations. Espai 13 will become the possible setting in which non-normative bodies will cease to be docile and deprived of agency and will instead become a danger, a threat that will rock normality.

The season will close with a performance by the Finnish artist Teo Ala-Ruona about Trans corporeality as a phantasmagorical and transcendental experience.
