Description
Ephemeral inflatable installation at CSA La Tabacalera 2011, Madrid
Share
  • The collective was invited to participate in the Artists’ Residency program promoted by CSA La Tabacalera in Madrid.
    The room, a basement, had no natural light and no exits except for the main entrance. The purple material covered the entire surface and the space was outlined in fluorescent light. The architectural flaws in the high ceilings created tensions in the plastic, forming arches that were hitherto inexistent in the site's original physiognomy.
     
    El colectivo es invitado a participar en el programa de Residencias de Artistas impulsado por el CSA La Tabacalera en Madrid.
    La sala, que se encuentra en un sótano, no cuenta con luz natural ni salidas al exterior exceptuando la puerta de entrada. El material púrpura recubre la totalidad de la superficie y mediante la luz de fluorescentes se dibuja el espacio. Las tensiones en el plástico creadas en los altos techos por accidentes arquitectónicos generan bóvedas anteriormente inexistentes en la fisonomía original del lugar.
