PROJECT: La prospección de Kairós. Iván Gómez

Azkuna Zentroa
"La prospección de Kairós", a project that the artist Iván Gómez has been working on since June 2019, will be inaugurated on 19 November in the BAT space at Lantegia, Laboratory of Ideas. This is a methodological research device divided into different phases of work referred to as Chapters which seeks to recontextualise the notion of "between" as the creation of a certain "space of knowledge".

The process began with an Introduction where the concept of "Denkraum" was presented, starting with the practices of other artists, emphasising its meaning as a "space for thought".

Then, in Chapter 0, a working group was formed and the active rehearsal began, based on a series of exercises with which to delve deeper into the "Denkraum" from the artistic practice.

After this, Chapter 1 goes on to offer an exhibition representing what has been learned in the previous months. In Chapter 2, the exhibition is inhabited by a few days of lectures in order to diffract the question of the "between" and read it from their perspectives.

The participants in these sessions included artists and investigators such as Juan Llano Borbolla, Aurora Fernández Polanco, Iván Flores, Oriol Fontdevila, Emma Ingala and Bulegoa z/b, among others.

The project concludes with Chapter 3, which consists of a new exhibition created from the deconstruction of the previous chapters.
