INTERVENTION: Lo adherente y el fuego. Sandra Cuesta
The artist Sandra Cuesta presents an intervention in Azkuna Zentroa based on the sound of Lantegia 1 and its possibilities of resonance, inhabiting the space as a sound container to amplify the various existing sources.
Through the articulation of forms that intervene in the device’s spatial structure, the artist spatially alters a cavity produced during the assembly of the exhibition, making it sound.
According to the artist, the piece is “a list of songs composed from objects that open the possibility of something else. Its form is not complete, we cannot decipher it, but each song warns us of something. Songs like: it was the night, what I had to see, metallic information, messages around the neck, goodbye, can produce the sensation of tying up loose ends through sound amplifiers and soft volumes that hold a sound that was already there.”
