booth 17:

 ION MACARENO | More weight

Ion Macreno’s recent work revolves around an exercise in experimenting with the codes of certain urban behaviour where intuition and creativity travels through a normative fabric that responds to its own raison d’être. At the same time, he bases his work on the interest in any urban architecture that that is related to that sort of manifestations and that contextualises his activity. Macareno explores the idea of corporeity in the public space, understood as those actions that take place in the urban and social landscape, those gestures whose intention is that of adapting to it and vice versa, adjusting the urban layout to the needs of the individual, as well as creating civic spaces based on the intuition of the individual.

On this basis, Más Peso (More Weight) approaches the exhibition space as a public space, beyond the urban space. Therefore, Macareno presents a site-specific intervention in the booth that serves both as media and a total structure where the object and the subject coexist in one same plane.

In this eminently practical work, a series of actions trigger new ones and these in turn, other ones. So, in this intertwined link and according to its own logic (that of art), testimonies and artefacts appear, remnants of a process where the constant practice and technical exercise are fundamental pillars always destined to the experimentation and search for forms that may account for the aesthetical experience. Hence, a key principle emerges triggering artistic decisions that generate formal results.
