DESCRIPTION

Nicanor Araoz will speak about his work through poetry and free association, a technique used in psychoanalysis. Araoz’s practice explores the body, disintegration and nature in relation to homicide, torture and pain. In his talk, he will also address how psychedelia influences his work, and his interest in the film Perdues dans New York (1989), the artist Leigh Bowery and the theorist Georges Bataille.

In his practice, Marius Ritiu explores ideas surrounding travel, motion, migration and cosmology, aiming to reflect on the importance and/or triviality of heritage, borders, nationhood. Ritiu will speak about his ongoing series entitled The Global Citizen. For these sculptural works, he collects wood adorned with pre-Christian symbols from the ancient region Maramures in Romania. He cuts and reassembles the wood to form 12 pentagons, and uses a unique Gypsy processing method to then superimpose Belgian copper plates on top.

This program is supported, in part, by BARRO Arte Contemporáneo, Kunsten en Erfgoed, New York City Council District 34, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. 

This event is free and open to the public.
