The Transitable Systems project is a gathering of works which evoke a living structure in which the spectators become an active element marking the flow and connecting the spaces within.
Transitable Systems is inspired in the theory of autopoiesis formulated by biologists Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela, who propose that living systems are entities capable of reproducing and self-support.
This project has been structured using simple topics, such as opposition, fragmentation, hybridization and expansion. These secondary groupings give shape to a tour which hopes to be a compendium in which the pieces establish a conversation with each other, which implies an exercise in memory, order and relation. The visitor is a key element in this proposition, since the trajectory undertaken creates a flow connecting the ensemble, and creating a system.
The exhibit lays out three scales:
- The First: The pavilion, conceived as an inhabitable sculpture, is an architectural building containing artworks.
- The Second: The sculptures belonging to the constellation series, and paintings and large format structures which will be displayed along the hall and in the outer walls.
- The Third: Consisting of paintings, sculptures and video, situated inside the pavilion.
Among the group of large format pieces that I suggest for MUCA’s space, I’ve developed an architectural space: the pavilion. Within it, the groupings of artworks consisting of paintings, sculpture and video will be placed. This sculptural structure will make up the first scalimetric level of this project.
