Text ‘Momu & No Es: Being Singular Plural’ in: One Foot Out. Expeditions and Diasporas published by Espai 13 Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona, SP
The 2016-17 programme of exhibitions at Espai 13 presents six projects by artists who are working from the periphery of the usual circuits of contemporary art in Barcelona. They all address the issue of belonging to and breaking away from one’s original artistic context. The artists featured in the One Foot Out. Expeditions and Diasporas programme reflect on how working from a distance affects their art. They all share a liberated view of their surroundings and a working method that involes audience participation and approaches fiction and performativity. The programme offers a joint view of the artistic diaspora. Curated by Jordi Antas
Plural Being. I am the Others, the Others are Me by Momu & No Es reflects the constant search for calm in a hectic society. Through a theme park scenario, the exhibition attempts to answer a series of questions about the times we live in, the things we yearn for, and the rewards we expect in return for our day-to-day efforts. Momu & No Es present a new installation that recreates a phantomscape through a series of sculptural elements, mantric sounds, suspended images and performative elements that plunge visitors into a space of sublimation and estrangement. A reflection on personal space and on the body as testing ground that questions the human condition in a hyperconnected era.
