Electronic art at Espacio Pla

00:00

03/14/18 - Jorge Crowe and Hernán Soriano share their artworks at the venue donated by artist Eduardo Pla (1952-2012), a precursor in electronic and digital art. Crowe defines himself as an electro-artisan and in this exhibition he insists to "animate" technical objects of the past. His works "Mecatónica", "La voz de la fuente" and "Modo submarino" were created by using domestic magnetic tapes, turned into installations that broadcast sounds previously taped on them. Each of the pieces need the intervention of the visitors to activate them and, by doing so, a particular circuit of electronic noises begin. "Modo submarino" is the most interesting one, because with a small mic, it captures the sound of the electromagnetic charge of the cell phone.

In the upper floor, Hernán Soriano invites us to propel moving pieces that occupy the entire space.  Guiding arrows are place to indicate the movement required. A soft push is suggested. The result is quite interesting: a guitar sounds through a piece of wood, two large water drums sound like musical drums and a washer, when it falls through a stick, activates a lever that typewrites. The sounds feel familiar and even archaic because they belong to elements which we used to have and are now forgotten. All these instruments are part of an orchestra in which the artist is the director.  Thus each piece has no title and they are all part of this "Lapso" in which they act simultaneously.

The exhibition deserves to be visited, activated and experimented in site because it is absolutely personal and each representation is different, according to how the visitor dares to manipulate the objects.
