    Cuando todo cuadra y suena redondo
    Neil Harbisson

    Esta exposición uno de los trabajos de Mariano Zuzunaga -fruto de su experiencia en la creación de imágenes a partir de software destinado a procesos de digitalización visual- en diálogo y colaboración con Neil Harbisson, cyborg del diseño cromático de atmósferas aplicadas a la sonorización del color. Las configuraciones visuales que estas obras ofrecen son fruto de lo que el autor denomina azar inducido en donde no quedan excluidas las intervenciones puntuales que el creador aplica para modificar el comportamiento programado de las herramientas y funciones del software que utiliza. Lejos de toda pretención objetiva y alejadas de las interferencias a que pudiesen estar sometidas por la subjetividad de un autor, Mariano Zuzunaga se limita a entablar un diálogo sin consignas previas con los resultados que los procesos tecnológicos que desarrolla le ofrecen a la vez que sus obras dialogan con la obra del músico y diseñador cyborg Neil Harbisson, quien con su ojo cibernético las traduce en composiciones sonoras participando así de un doble sentido interdisciplinar, a la vez tecnológico y armónico, entablado por creadores de dos generaciones distintas.

    Mariano Zuzunaga (Lima, 1953) inicia su carrera de fotógrafo en 1972 con un trabajo inspirado en la obra de Alexander Calder. Realiza estudios en música, fotografía e historia. Desde 1975 vive en Barcelona. En 1980 su trabajo recibe un temprano reconocimiento al ser expuesto en la Fundación Joan Miró. Entre las instituciones públicas y privadas que cuentan con obras suyas destacan: The Museum of Modern Art - New York, la Bibliothèque Nationale de Paris, The Museum of Fine Arts- Houston (Allan Chasanoff Collection), Ansel Adams Archives (Center for Creative Photography-Tucson), Fundación Joan Miró de Barcelona, Fundación Tapiés de Barcelona, Museo de Arte de Lima, Museu Nacional d ́ Art de Catalunya, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Barcelona y la Fundación Foto Colectanea. Es Licenciado en Historia y Doctor en Bellas Artes por la Universidad de Barcelona. Miembro fundador de The Photographer+s Company. Mariano Zuzunaga es actualmente profesor de fotografía en la Facultad de Bellas Artes de la Universidad de Barcelona en donde investiga en procesos de creación visual a partir de aplicaciones alternativas de la tecnología digital.

    Neil Harbisson (Londres, 1982) nace con acromatopsia. Inicia sus estudios de piano a los 7 años en Mataró donde es discípulo del compositor Enric Torra i Pórtulas. A los 16 años estudia bachillerato artístico con el permiso exclusivo de no usar color en sus trabajos.A los 18 años, se traslada a Dublín donde continua sus estudios de piano en Waltons' School of Music. El año siguiente es aceptado en Dartington College of Arts (Inglaterra) donde estudia composición y piano. Es discípulo del compositor experimental inglés Frank Denyer y del pianista manco John Railton.
    En 2003, crea un ojo cibernético llamado "eyeborg" con un amigo para poder escuchar los colores. Harbisson se lo instala permanentemente en la cabeza y a los 21 años se convierte en el primer hombre cibernético reconocido oficialmente por un gobierno.

    Air Dispensers, 1971

    "Air Capsules, 1971/2013. 4 or 5 sweets dispensers were placed in the middle of a large room, for 2 DKKR one could get a small transparent plastic container, empty as it contained only air. I was stunned by the simplicity of the work though it also had several layers of meaning. It’s a joke on our for your convenience society and it tells us that there is no such thing as an empty space."

    "Air Dispensers features a candy dispenser filled with seemingly empty capsules. Instead these plastic containers are filled with something valuable— air—which, according to the artist, is “the only thing we share.”

    Hou Hanru Hear us and Beatrix Ruf Protect Us deploy a
    strategy of playing possum, known in animal behaviour as
    thanatosis. Thanatosis is a form of self-mimicry whereby
    the animal mimic imitates itself in a dead state. Here I am
    asking for deliverance and intercession. The expressions
    "priez pour nous", "protect us", "delivrez-nous", "hear us"
    come from a prayer form known as a litany. Litanies are
    call and response prayers. The names on these signs and the
    other signs in this series such as, Hou Hanru Hear Us or
    Hans Ulrich Obrist Priez Pour Nous are those of
    internationally recognized critics, curators and directors.
    I don't consider my stories, drawings or art world
    celebrity signs to be so much laments about lack of
    fairness or injustice as they are cyphers of a bigger
    picture -- of the world we long for. My intent is to
    question what constitutes art and how it functions. My
    project casts a critical eye on the catalogue of art
    history as well as past and present hagiography. Beatrix
    Ruf Protect Us asks us to take a critical look at the our
    situations and our institutions. It asks a question that
    cannot be answered: "What do we long for?".
    This brief is mostly about the idea of the project. The
    exhibition includes a series of watercolours, a large chalk
    board, a large sign on a trestle, a pile of carved logs, a
    machine for testing art world celebrity work gloves, a
    series of scale model museums with signs on top of them and
    some sheep shearing and milking. A related book with
    stories and essays by Bill Burns, Jennifer Allen, Dan Adler
    and Dannys Montes de Oca Moreda will be published by YYZ
    Books, Toronto. It is a project about longing.

  5. Small, Unusual and Specialist Museums Survey | Crate | Davis Museum | UK

    On our opening night (August 23rd) the mini museums Director, Davis Lisboa gave a performance conference at CRATE:
    "Quotes Section from Davis Museum | The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona
    (Unusual Conference)"

    A collaboration between CRATE and the Davis Lisboa Mini Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona.
    The Small, Unusual and Specialist Museums Survey engages with small, unusual and specialist museums across Europe,
    CRATE/Davis Museum will also host seven miniature solo exhibitions over Aug/Sep/Oct.

    CRATE is currently playing host to the Davis Lisboa Mini Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona which is running a weekly exhibition programme.
    The first in the series is Canadian artist Bill Burns who is exhibiting his work "Hou Hanru Hear Us". You can see "Hou Hanru Hear Us" at CRATE until Sunday 1st September.

    The next miniature exhibition will be "Magical Crystal Garden" by Betts Robinson. Opening 6 September with Limoncello and roast chicken.

    This week we launched our new research project, "The Small, Unusual and Specialist Museums Survey",
    which is attempting to catalogue and connect with as many small, unusual and specalist museums in Europe as we can.
    CRATE is sending out a survey via email and post asking the staff of these museums what they think about their institutions,
    their collections, what they think might happen to their museums in the future and how they feel their museums contribute to the cultural lfe of their area.
    This project is ongoing and perhaps impossible but our research starts now and you can see the project as it unfolds on the walls of CRATE throughout August/September.
