I Am Vertical
The Swedish duo Gideonsson/Londré close the exhibition program for the 2017-2018 season at Fundació Joan Miró’s Espai 13 with the show I Am Vertical
The project is a video installation exploring the idea of verticality that invites visitors to think of the world’s highest mountains as terrestrial islands. Through direct experimentation, the artists have examined the effects that human beings experience at very high altitudes and how these sensations enhance mental states of isolation or introspection.
I Am Vertical closes The Possibility of an Island, the exhibition program for the 2017-2018 season at Fundació Joan Miró’s Espai 13, organized in collaboration with Fundació Banc Sabadell. Curated by Alexandra Laudo, the project explores some of the symbolic and sociocultural meanings that have historically been associated with a paradigmatic space in the collective imaginary: the island.
