Sobre Lima

Sobre Lima consiste en dos instalaciones que exploran el imaginario del espacio físico por encima de la ciudad. Las azoteas, algunas veces depósitos, otras "espacio de reserva", son el punto de partida. Sobre nuestras cabezas los techos son potencialmente un espacio para ampliar la vivienda, una idea de futuro progreso. Mientras tanto, soluciones rápidas para un clima indeciso: Lima está cubierta de calaminas.



(Proyección para segunda planta)

Una ciudad sin sombras, la luz de invierno cuando logra traspasar la capa de nubes es difusa y plana. Al mismo tiempo el cielo limeño nunca descarga. Ese cielo contenido es comparable al malestar que sienten sus habitantes a diario, en palabras de Romeo Grompone, "con la política, con el trabajo, con las instituciones, con las exigencias a las que nos somete la vida cotidiana, con lo que tenemos y con lo que nos espera. El malestar sigue nuestros recorridos, pero es incapaz de detenerse en ningún campo de lo que vamos observando y termina, al fin, por atraparnos, ya que desemboca en un sentimiento asociado a lo que atisbamos y no queremos o no podemos entender.” Pendiendo de un hilo, aguarda sobre nosotros lo que nos impide ver un panorama completo.


(Acumulación)

Para esta instervención se utilizaron bolsas plásticas con agua de mar, haciendo referencia a la solución popular para ahuyentar las moscas. De este modo, Acumulación señala simbólicamente en dos direcciones: hacia el malestar contenido y a su posible disipación.

Habitación para uno



(ENGLISH BELOW)  

Habitación para uno  (2006 - 2007), es una copia a tamaño real de una parte del espacio interior de una vivienda: la acción consistió en forrar (a manera de molde) las paredes y mobiliario de la habitación en la que vivía con una capa de cartón, para que luego se le construyera una estructura "a medida" que la mantuviese en pie en otros lugares. La vivienda pertenece a los grandes bloques de pisos situados en el barrio de Sant Martí de Provençals que, como tantos otros del distrito y de toda Barcelona, se originó como respuesta a las olas inmigratorias internas iniciados los años 50. La habitación tenía el mobiliario adosado a las paredes; a modo de estructura inmodificable a la que me tenía que ajustar. Es entonces que empiezo a copiar esta estructura y sus compartimentos como una manera representar mi proceso de adaptación a una ciudad y circunstancias distintas. Esta acción y su resultado material final refieren a la toma de un espacio: a la creación de un emplazamiento.

Copio algo para conocerlo mejor. Del mismo modo que se aprende a ver mejor una cara cuando se le dibuja. En este copiar se manifiesta por primera vez la posibilidad de la coincidencia, de la relacion primordial entre lo copiado y aquello que es copiado. 

L. Wittgenstein

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------  

Single Room (2006 - 2007),  is a real size copy of an apartment room: the action consisted of covering with a cardboard layer (as a cast) the walls and furniture of the room. Using the cardboard layer as a layout, I constructed a wood structure that supported the cardboard, as an inverse architectural procedure. The apartment belongs to the blocks of flats located in Sant Martí of Provençals, and as many other neighborhoods in Barcelona, it was build as a response to the internal immigration in Spain during the 1950s. The room’s furniture was integrated to the walls, as an unchangeable structure that I had to adjust to. As I copied the structure and its compartments, a process of my personal adaptation to the city and its living circumstances were being represented. This action and its resulting material, referred to the appropiation of a space and the result of settling down 


In between

 

(ENGLISH BELOW)

En este video intento dibujar y filmar al mismo tiempo la línea del horizonte en la ventana de mi piso. El visor de la cámara define mi ángulo de visión, ya que dibujo a través de él, controlando así mis movimientos. El dibujo está constantemente tratando de ajustarse y de capturar la nueva perspectiva que surge del recorrido que se realiza sobre la ventana; y queda como vestigio de una posición en el espacio a partir del cual fue ejecutado. In between hace referencia a la frontera con el otro, a la distancia. Hace alusión a un punto de vista no sólo espacial (como vivir en la periferia) sino a la confrontación de la ciudad a partir de una mirada foránea.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In this video I intended to draw and capture the city skyline of my apartment at the same time. I used the camera as my eye; the screen defines the angle of my view and therefore my movements. Because the camera is constantly moving, my perspective changes and I have to adjust myself. By drawing the line I leave a trace of a point of view that is not reproducible, unless you take exactly the same movements and positions as I did. In between refers to the frontier between the one and another person. During the time I did this video, I lived outside the city centre and watched it with a distance, which was in one way geographical and in the other hand metaphorical of my point of view as a foreigner.

Intervalo como entre-acto



intervalo como entreacto from verónica luyo on Vimeo.

Intervalo como entre-acto es un proyecto de autorretrato. Consistió en realizar una video-performance que se presenta como instalación, en la que la cámara se encuentra amarrada a mi brazo y es a tráves del visor que controlo la acción. Ésta se trata de avanzar con los brazos por una escalera horizontal. Sujetar /soltarse para poderse volver a sujetarse. Acción y contra-acción. Alude a los entreactos de la pieza teatral, pausas ‘vacías’ en cuanto a representación, pero imprescindibles por su funcionalidad, sin las que la pieza teatral no podría continuar.

De este modo, Intervalo como entre-acto intenta reflejar un espacio y tiempo intermedio que son condición de posibilidad para la representación misma, y que usualmente, no forma parte de ella.

Este video fue producido en el marco de la edición del libro OFF THE RECORD / Representacions frontereres de la memòria històrica de les dones, y fue presentado como una video-instalación en Hipocampo 2 (Barcelona) y Rusia Galería (Tucumán, Argentina).

Durante el verano del 2008 Annegien y Verónica vivieron en un piso compartido en el centro de Barcelona. El piso estaba amoblado con las pertenencias de su primer propietario, una mujer mayor. En septiembre, el contrato estaba por finalizar y el dueño no quería renovarlo, entonces la agencia inmobiliaria les obligó a regresar todos los objetos y muebles al lugar que señalaba el inventario del piso. De no ser así, no les devolverían el dinero de la garantía. El inventario describía obsesivamente cada objeto de la casa: “imagen del Papa actual”; a veces su condición: “una botella de licor (medio llena)”; hasta incluso su lugar en la habitación: “el mando del aire acondicionado está encima de ...” Ninguno de los que vivía en el piso en el 2008 lo conoció con su aspecto inicial. El contrato y el inventario se habían firmado en el 2001. Bajo estas circunstancias empezaron a reconstruir las habitaciones del piso en su marco original, siete años después, a través de la interpretación del inventario.  El montaje de esta videoinstalación consiste en un video loop (7’29’’) y 2 pistas de audio también en loop (16’33’’) que funcionan independientemente de la imagen.

The starting point of this video installation is the inventory list of an apartment where we used to live. After the lease expired, the real state agency hired by the owner forced us to return all the objects and furniture in the same place as it once described in the list. None of the current residents lived there at the moment tha contract started, so we re-constructed the house in its original setting, seven years later, by interpreting the inventory list we got.

Estos dibujos son esquemas que intentan explicar el proceso de una piedra de sal transfiriéndose al mapa del mar de Lewis Carrol. La transferencia de la sal hacia el papel ocurre por la condiciones físicas del lugar, como la humedad y la circulación del aire. Es el señalamiento de la relación entre un elemento y su entorno, de las circunstancias y sus efectos.

La terma

Este trabajo implicó la confrontación a un contenedor cerrado mediante la apertura y segmentación del mismo sin tener ningún conocimiento previo de sus componentes de interiores. La elección de la composición de sus partes para la construcción de la escultura refiere a los sistemas de bisagras que tienen los retablos peruanos que permiten abrir y/o cerrar sus tapas para observar su interior.

Este contenedor es presentado como metáfora de un cuerpo. Con capas, membrana, piel, límites entre el interior y el exterior. La terma posee conductos a través de los cuales pasan flujos, al igual que las personas y su experiencia de vida que en ambos casos deja constancia de su paso. Marca un lugar entre lo presente y lo ausente, lo que es y lo que fue. El contenedor abierto termina contando la historia de un cuerpo al ser expuesto.

Serie de collages con fotos tomadas desde un vehículo en movimiento. Una especie de road movie narrado a partir de discontinuidades, de flujos entrecruzados. Descomponer el movimiento, la idea de persistencia retiniana, a partir de la introducción de fragmentos que no corresponden a la secuencia. Por otro lado, las fotografías son señalamientos de un reencuentro (y a la vez desencuentro) fugaz con un territorio y su construcción en el recuerdo.

Collage series made of photographs taken from a vehicle in movement. A kind of road movie made of discontinuous images and crossed fluxes. An intend to decompose movement and the idea of persistence of vision, through the introduction of fragments that don't belong to the sequence.

On the other hand, the photographs marks a brief encounter (at the same disencounter) with a territory and their construction in the memories.

El mapa de Mikel o Spanish souvenir
Edición de postales

 Este dibujo surge de una conversación entre un extranjero y una persona de origen vasco. En un primer momento se trataba de explicar tan sólo la geografía de España, pero derivó en una apreciación geopolítica: una visión subjetiva del territorio; de las relaciones y conflictos entre las comunidades que integran un país.

El mapa de Mikel o Spanish souvenir
Postcard edition

This drawing was made during a conversation with a person born in the Basque Coun¬try. In the beginning of the conversation, he tried to explain only the geography of Spain, but he couldn’t help doing a geopolitical interpretation: a subjective point of view of the territory; of the relations and conflicts between the communities that integrate this country.


Bed grown to the heat parte de la estructura de una cama que fue cortada y reemsamblada arbitrariamente con bisagras, con el único fin que todas sus partes pudieran constituir un único plano. De este modo la tridimensionalidad del objeto (la oposición interior-exterior) desaparece. La estructura es ahora completamente articulable y puede tomar diferentes posiciones. Utilizando unos de los pocos objetos (calefacción) existentes en la galería que aún nos recuerda que no es un espacio absolutamente neutro; realizo una intervención que intenta parasitar este espacio. No pudiendo desligarme de la carga del objeto cama, la intervención hace referencia a un refugio precario.


bed grown to the heat

In this work, the structure of a bed was dismantled and assembled with window hinges in an arbitrary way, with the only purpouse that it becomes a flat surface. By doing this, the limit between interior and exterior dissapears and the structure is flexible and can take different positions. In the gallery the bed structure takes place next to the heater, the only object that is not yet part of the white cube. Like a homeless in the city, "Bed grown to the heat” parasitizes the space of the gallery.

Intervenimos el video de No me quitte pa, interpretado en vivo por Jaques Brel, suprimiendo el audio del mismo. Enfocándonos en el gesto de la boca de Brel, este queda como único vestigio significante de un texto y melodía silenciados. Lo que era antes lo complementario en la comunicación, se convierte en la base de la misma. La música a partir de su carácter performativo. El discurso es ahora el gesto.

But what exactly is simulation? Gilles Deleuze has distinguished the simulacrum from the copy in two ways: the copy is "endowed with resemblance", whereas the simulacrum need not to be; and the copy produces the model as the original, whereas the simulacrum "calls into question the very notion of the copy and the model."

(Hal Foster, The return of the real)
