Materialism of Waste

A Look into Landet’s Universe

Section 11: Compost


This is a technique that creates the necessary conditions for decomposers to produce a high quality fertilizer from organic waste.

José Luis lives from cultural residues. Through his practice, he builds in a constant and rhythmic way a great soil —ATLAS—, steadily unfolding in multiple directions.

This soil admits all kinds of sources: painting, literature, letters, photographs, encyclopedias, etc. The movements produced during his quest for symbolic materials are what oxygenates this soil, the support on which he develops his work.

Residues are shredded systematically everyday, contributing to the fragmentation and decomposition of the symbolic matter. This behavior facilitates the assimilation of new attributes to his own universe: the liberation of original forms.

 Landet’s soil is a big mantle of organic matter created by himself. It’s not an exaggeration to think that its area spreads throughout the whole surface of the Earth, since there’s no interruption between its production and reproduction. The artworks are its living matter. Each piece of “waste” he finds is replicated in an infinity of shapes and matters.

Materialism of Waste features a small part of Landet’s Universe. Jose Luis’ first gesture is the fragmentation of paintings made by amateur artists between the 1940’s and the 1970’s, which he buys in flea markets. Once he has cut them, he arranges these pieces to his will: color, shape, signature, texture, topic, etc. Then, he pastes, keeps on cutting, sets on fire, sands down, paints, draws or immerses these pieces… He makes all these operations to vindicate these authors, forgotten and erased by hegemonic history. José Luis shines a light on them. 

In a canvas, the areas that suffer the most from the passing of time are the edges, which usually end up marked and rusty because of the nails.

Landet rescues these remainders and puts together a new narrative; these edges are the backbone of Materialism of Waste:

Maps of landscapes drawn and painted on their own surface that keep on exploring their inner sides in search of symbolic matter. A loop that loops on itself and becomes infinite.

Camping

Sabemos del poder del arte por su capacidad para convocar y aglutinar a públicos diversos dispuestos a cuestionar sus valores, acciones, creencias y decisiones.

Sabemos también que los tiempos que corren demandan redefinir el valor del arte y la cultura pero que no seremos capaces de hacerlo sin crear entornos en los que sea posible compartir compromisos entre las personas interesadas.

We know the power of art for its ability to convene and bring together diverse audiences willing to question their values, actions, beliefs and decisions.

We also know that current times demand to redefine the value of art and culture, but that we will not be able to do so without creating environments in which it is possible to share commitments among interested people.

Con la ambición de ser más relevantes, permeables y participativos hemos creado CAMPING, una iniciativa que abrirá el espacio de la galería NF/ NIEVES FERNANDEZ a diversos actores culturales, con el fin de que puedan desarrollar y exhibir sus proyectos y creaciones libremente. Tomando como soporte de sus acciones el espacio expositivo, los diversos actores desplegarán sus proyectos temporales interactuando con la exposición instalada en ese momento en la galería.

Con este proyecto, CAMPING ofrece un encuentro entre los creadores y el público quienes acamparán tomando la galería como un paisaje privilegiado en el que disfrutar de un periodo de reflexión y convivencia alejado de las estridencias del mundo exterior.

CAMPING es un proyecto de Nerea e Idoia Fernández, directoras de NF/NIEVES FERNANDEZ y de Blanca Cortés, abogada especializada en propiedad intelectual.

The human being often confuses joy with happiness and clings to a superficial idea of life, far from the search for fulfillment and transcendence.

'Prosaico' is a choreography that reflects on the intention of achieving our deepest desires without any effort. For that, a common resource is to deny the most monotonous and daily aspects of our existence until we make them invisible, replacing them with a glow that behaves as a mirage in which we feel more successful.

Yet, our everyday life is filled with subtle bits and pieces full of experiences and beauty. Unfortunately, the path to simplicity is not as obvious and restful as it might seem; on the contrary, it is an art reserved for free minds that can shake off the weight of conventions and the slavery of the predictable to inhabit the mystery of the small and the unexpected.

It is in the prose of the day-to-day routine where one discovers beauty.

‘El año sin verano’ [The year without a summer] is an intimate moment of reading, an invitation to immerse yourself in ghost stories by the light of an old fireplace. To remember the childhood times when we continued reading at night under the covers with a flashlight.

We will embark on a journey through a circular book that is constantly forking, which comes to life and takes physical form in the actions of various characters, various ghosts that will accompany us in the room. Together we will experience a time that decomposes and multiplies, and we will immerse ourselves in stories of crazy poets locked in by the rain: stories about the relationship of the strange year without summer of 1816 with the current ecological crisis; of the birth of Frankenstein's creature and the near human extinction and we will read stories of vampires while we will slowly see the wheel of extinctions roll on the planet, the cycle of life and death and the deep darkness that resides in the soul of the terrible predator that is the human being.

ELENA URUCATU and CARLOS MATÉ work through sculpture, installation, video, performance, architecture or design in projects that deal with our relationship with culture, knowledge and art. Between the lines an ambiguity or coexistence of extremes: on the one hand, the need for post-human thinking, the search for certain keys with which to face the ecological crisis and the shadow of possible extinction represented by the current Anthropocene epoch; on the other, individual constructions on the same situation: obsessive inner worlds loaded with subjectivity, where art and culture would be the only possible anchor point with a world that is falling apart.

‘Anatomía y Estrategia’ is a choreographic installation by Natalia Fernandes, where the dancer's body is transformed into a living sculpture that, while moving, questions the limits of the body as an artwork. The piece seeks an attentive and vehement gaze at the body that inhabits the space between rationality and nature, in this constant negotiation of concepts that fight and complement each other within each human being.

"serenity rave is a place, a heartbeat, something that is not visible but is present. It would be something like a suspension that remains, that does not crystallize and that in itself has the ability to mutate in order to open the multiple possibilities that we can find in what we do not yet know and that, perhaps, scares us. A place where the body is an ambiguous territory that makes us perceive the world but not completely and, in which, dance acts as a medium. A rift in which past, present and future converge. A way to invoke dancing all these times together, becoming one, which is sustained forever. serenity rave is the night in which we learned to speak with the body, in which we were overwhelmed and something threatened ruin; It is the night I discovered that my arm was his leg and my head was a ghost, and I, who was standing there dancing, I keep dancing."

Fardo proposes an encounter between the sound experiment, contemporary dance and the gallery environment.

Fardo offers an experience without passive subjects.

Fardo recognizes the intimate relationship between the contemporary subject and a kind of technological sameness: the mobile that one possesses.

Fardo plays at dismantling the mobile shutdown protocol during the show.

Fardo promotes the active use of mobile phones as a sound source for the show.

Fardo invites public attendees to establish and maintain the sound plot by activating any or all of the variety of alarms installed on their mobiles at will.

Fardo seeks an experience in which contemporary dance will act as a catalyst for such complexity.

Therefore:

Fardo presents the dancer and choreographer Poliana Lima who will be in charge of managing the obstacles, encounters and possibilities inherent to the dynamic tension offered by an art gallery with an ongoing exhibition, an active audience randomly scattered around it, and a state of unpredictable sound.

(Sin título) cuerpo sobre espacio is a contemporary dance sit

"(SIN TÍTULO) CUERPO SOBRE ESPACIO", BY ISABELA ROSSI

(Sin título) cuerpo sobre espacio is a contemporary dance site-specific created and performed by Isabela Rossi. In this solo, the dancer uses not so conventional ways to study, know and inhabit the present space with a single tool: her own body.

A body that creates new spaces, that builds spaces. A body transforming space, a space that transforms a body. What do I take with me and what do I leave in a space? Is the time the same in each place; in each experience; in oblivion; in contemplation? Can time be measured?...

 

Isabela Rossi is a Brazilian choreographer and performer based in Madrid. Graduated in contemporary dance from RCPD Mariemma in 2016, she has worked as a dancer with different choreographers such as, Aiala Etchegaray, David Vilarinyo, Lucía Marote, Poliana Lima, Candelaria Antelo and Natalia Fernandes, receiving the AISGE award for outstanding dancer in the ‘LINGUA’ piece. As a choreographer, she continues to work on the solo ‘(Sin título) cuerpo sobre espacio’ and ‘(Sin título) cuerpo agrimensor’, a proposal that was selected to participate in the project ‘Solos en Pradillo’ (2019), the 33rd Choreographic Contest of Madrid, Madrid Surge 2020 and in 2021 within the Ibero-American cross-cutting activities.

‘SCORE/PARTITURA’ BY MARÍA AUXILIADORA GÁLVEZ Y JONE SAN MARTÍN

SCORE is a collection of simultaneous mediations. A rupture of the observation protocols in art.

SCORE invites you to observe somatically. The layers that the successive points of view provide us overlap, and throughout the piece your own body, together with the rest of the bodies, becomes a site of conscious observation. These bodies are not passive, they have something to say in relation to the work and the events that mediate between them and the pieces.

SCORE is an accumulation of trajectories and perspectives, of movements and textures. Mediation takes the form of overlapping scores and active actions that open modalities.

In SCORE, bodies go beyond their own skin, leaving traces, lines that intertwine in materialities and invisibilities.

SCORE reveals a single conscious, whole, collective body made up of pieces, works and living organisms. A body that is made and unmade with the fragility and power of aesthetic immersion. It is a body in somatic coalescence.

 

‘SCORE/PARTITURA’ is CAMPING's seventh action, an initiative that will open NF/ NIEVES FERNANDEZ' gallery space to various cultural actors, so that they can freely develop and exhibit their projects and creations. Taking the exhibition space as a support for their actions, the various actors will display their temporary projects interacting with the exhibition installed at that time in the gallery.

"Ningún gesto es espontáneo, cada movimiento del cuerpo está configurado por nuestras experiencias, nuestra historia, los contextos en los que hemos crecido.

Nuestros gestos son una acumulación infinita de nuestras vivencias pasadas.

El cambio surge al relacionar esos gestos con el contexto inmediatamente presente y así generar rupturas que desplieguen nuevos puntos de vista.

"No gesture is spontaneous, every movement of the body is shaped by our experiences, our history, the contexts in which we have grown up.

Our gestures are an infinite accumulation of our past experiences.

Change arises by relating those gestures to the immediately present context and thus generating ruptures that unfold new points of view."

Queridos amigos y amigas,

¡Hoy NF/NIEVES FERNÁNDEZ cumple 46 años!

Al celebrarlo y mirar atrás, nos ha saltado a la vista que continuamos fieles a la misión con la que Nieves Fernández inauguró Yerba en el año 1977: la de situar el arte y el pensamiento en el centro de nuestras acciones, la de comprender la poesía como un mecanismo de revuelta necesario.

Yerba nació en Murcia con la intención de, además de galería y librería, realizar estudios y dar conferencias acerca de las obras expuestas en cada momento. Deseaba que los profesionales encontrasen en él un lugar para desarrollar diversas actividades culturales que tuvieran interés y que su trayectoria se apoyase en distintas ramas de la cultura.

En 2023 honramos este camino y somos coherentes con él. Trabajamos con artistas fundamentales en nuestros primeros pasos, y con otros igualmente importantes para definirnos y desafiarnos. Su diversidad de trayectoria, lenguaje y procedencia nos ayuda a buscar un nuevo espacio de entendimiento, a poner y a estimular la sociedad en la que vivimos. A los artistas, gracias.

La galería es un espacio dinámico, abierto a la crítica y al encuentro entre creadores y público. Además de las exposiciones, organizamos charlas y presentaciones, y también INTERLUDIO, un programa de muestras cortas para que artistas, representados o no, presenten piezas inéditas que necesitan de un formato distinto de apreciación. El último de los Interludios celebrados fue Cuando todo era nada, del Calixto Ramírez, y pronto anunciaremos el siguiente. La galería también promueve CAMPING, proyecto sin ánimo de lucro que ocupa nuestro espacio con danza, música y performance para potenciar redes de manera permeable y participativa. La semana que viene, los días 27 y 28, tendrá lugar la novena edición de CAMPING, con Poliana Lima y Lucas Condró.

A los que nos acompañáis en esta aventura, gracias.

Además, hemos creado VARIATION junto a la parisina Galerie Sator, la cual nos acogió en su espacio de Le Marais en octubre, y expondrá en el nuestro de Carabanchel entre el 22 y el 26 de febrero. Por otro lado, con la mexicana Arroniz, la colombiana Nueveochenta y la alemana Michael Sturm hace tiempo compartimos recursos en la plataforma experimental cooperativa Noplace.

En las próximas semanas inauguraremos en la galería “Un fatal descontento de lugar” de Tamara Arroyo, y participaremos en ARCO Madrid con nuestro stand y un solo project de Pipo Hernández Rivero. Además, en primavera presentaremos Autoretrato, una película sobre Jordi Teixidor realizada por Miguel Alvarez, Álvaro Oliveros y Bruno Dozza.

Dear friends,
Today NF/NIEVES FERNÁNDEZ is 46 years old!
As we celebrate and look back, we remain faithful to the mission with which Nieves Fernandez inaugurated Yerba in 1977: to place art and thought at the center of our actions and to understand poetry as a necessary mechanism of revolt.
Yerba was born in Murcia with the intention of, in addition to being a gallery and bookstore, carrying out studies and giving lectures about the works exhibited there at any given time. It wanted professionals to find in it a place to develop diverse cultural activities and to have a trajectory that would be supported by different branches of culture.
In 2023 we honor this path and are consistent with it. We work with fundamental artists in our first steps, and with others equally important to define and challenge us. Their diversity of background, language, and provenance helps us to seek a new space of understanding, to put and stimulate the society in which we live. To the artists, thank you.
The gallery is a dynamic space, open to criticism and to the encounter between creators and the public. In addition to the exhibitions, we organize talks and presentations, and also INTERLUDIO, a program of short exhibitions for artists, represented or not, to exhibit unpublished pieces that need a different format of appreciation. The last of the Interludios held was "When everything was nothing", by Calixto Ramírez, and we will soon announce the next one. The gallery also promotes CAMPING, a non-profit project that occupies our space with dance, music, and performance to promote networks in a permeable and participatory way. Next week, on the 27th and 28th, the ninth edition of CAMPING will take place, with Poliana Lima and Lucas Condró.
To those of you who join us in this adventure, thank you.
In addition, we have created VARIATION with the Parisian Galerie Sator, which welcomed us in its space in Le Marais in October, and will exhibit in ours in Carabanchel between February 22 and 26. On the other hand, with the Mexican Arroniz, the Colombian Nueveochenta, and the German Michael Sturm, we share resources in the experimental cooperative platform Noplace
In the coming weeks, we will open at the gallery "Un fatal descontento de lugar" by Tamara Arroyo, and we will participate in ARCO Madrid with our stand and a project by Pipo Hernández Rivero. In addition, in spring we will present Autoretrato, a film about Jordi Teixidor by Miguel Alvarez, Álvaro Oliveros, and Bruno Dozza.  
We invite you to follow us on Instagram to keep up to date with all our programming for this new year, we hope it will be full of art, projects, collaborations, and revolts! Thank you for celebrating with us!

no place es una plataforma experimental para la exhibición de arte contemporáneo.

Operando bajo un sistema colaborativo, en el que las herramientas, los equipos y los recursos de cada miembro están abiertos a los demás, no place supone un esfuerzo colectivo para producir y financiar eventos en los que el foco de atención recaiga completamente en el trabajo de los artistas. En este sentido, se trata de un experimento inédito, con el que las galerías buscan aportar a aquella transformación de la realidad establecida que suelen buscar todos los agentes vinculados al mundo del arte.

In this sense, it is an unprecedented experiment, and one with which the galleries seek to contribute to the transformation of an established reality as typically sought by all agents linked to the art world.

For more information, click here.

Giaconi’s work takes place in the field of sculpture, installation and mainly drawing, which operates as the heart of all his production and starting point to generate spatial interventions and imagery that moves across  the aesthetics of chaos and procedural investigation. Architecture, structure, memory and environment are all key elements in the artist’s practice, which focuses on proposing experiences that build tension between opposite concepts like construction and destruction; birth and death; confinement and freedom; depth and surface; dream and awakening.
