LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE is pleased to welcome the Mexican-Catalan artist Roc Parés in residence from September 13 to October 24, 2019 where he will develop the project BHDD. We wish to invite the public to his opening of residence on October 10, 2019 at 5pm.
BHDD is an immersive art experience based on an interactive installation that allows participants to live their own decapitation. Beyond the violence of this statement, BHDD is an experimental research project which aims to investigate the deconstruction of virtual subjectivities and their mediating function of human experience in interactive audiovisual environments. The confluence of the point of view of the character, the camera and the audience that gave rise to the POV's* criticism in the cinematographic language from a gender perspective (Laura Mulvey, Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema, Screen, 1975) takes again a huge importance in this moment in which the immersive and interactive art seeks its own syntax, but remains anchored in the enunciative formulas of cinema and television.
This residency is produced as part of an exchange with Bòlit, Center of Contemporary Art. In addition, the artist receives a grant from the Sistema Nacional de Creadores de Arte 2017-2020 of FONCA.
