Edurne Rubio - The visitors

don 03/12/2015 > zat 05/12/2015

Thursday 3 December 7PM @ Bâtard Festival, Beursschouwburg Brussels

There’s nobody left here! Why is it that in architectural photographs buildings are always deserted? Where are the people? Are they about to appear or did they just leave? “A house lives only of men, as a tomb” says Cesar Vallejo.

“The Visitors” is a research project about presence and absence, about the way we look at things, but also about what we fail to see. A research that uses architecture as the perfect witness. Edurne Rubio’s research has always been related to the individual or collective perception of time and space. Interested in contexts that make perception a given variable and mutant, forgotten or archived, she seeks to associate or contrast ways of perceiving reality with the aim of creating a second composed reality. Her work is close to documentary and anthropology, using interviews, archive images and research on oral communication.
