Intervention by Sara Pereira and Sofia Lomba
Intervention by Planting Concrete
Sofia Lomba and Sara Pereira bring together two perspectives on body and transformations, staging deformations, mutation and hybrids. Facing with, looking at, being looked at, showing, exploring and showing again, are processes that both works deal with. In their part they propose a classificatory approach. On one hand, Pereira introduces a collection of moments extracted from the forest of everyday life, made of notebooks that track the the fluidity of bodies and the precarious landscapes in which they are placed. On the other hand, Lomba proposes a series of drawings exercising botanical taxonomic systems that consciously confuse the reproductive organs of plants and humans.
TIER.space will also present the results of the Planting Concrete workshop lead by Miguel Prados Sánchez and Pablo Ramón Benitez. The outcomes of the workshop held on August 11 and 12 will serve as a new part of the space’s infrastructure, working on the topic of cultivation through the production of a series of planters (see description and bios for the workshop above).
