Everything is always somewhere else: there where it begins. — Roberto Juarroz [1] (tr. by Mary Crow) Today, more than ever, I feel the

Mutable in all parts of the creative process, the form goes from idea to realization by acquiring physicality through the force that preceded its conception. Not only does the form alter constantly, but also the concept behind its structure. While Plato stated that the

No sólo la forma altera constantemente, sino también el concepto detrás de su estructura. Mientras Platón

Curated by Chris Sharp Known for his irreverent reverence of materials, such as women’s clothing, domestic furnishings and vintage photography, among other things, Martín Soto Climent is an inveterate recycler. However, his work is less about valorizing the overlooked, neglected and everyday than it is about transforming it. These transformations, which are marked as much by

Curada por Chris Sharp Conocido por su irreverente reverencia a los materiales, tales como ropa de mujer, artículos del hogar y fotografías antiguas, entre otras cosas, Martín Soto Climent es un reciclador empedernido.

A Slight Gestuary seeks to function as a kind of reliquary of slight gestures, which is also in and of itself, inevitably slight (mindful of the mathematical impossibility of any

Lulu se enorgullece en presentar The Lulennial: A Slight Gestuary. Cargado de doble y hasta triple sentido, el título literalmente lo dice todo. A Slight Gestuary (Un gestuario sutil) pretende funcionar como un “gestuario”, una especie de relicario de gestos sutiles, que también es, de por sí, inevitablemente breve. Teniendo en cuenta la imposibilidad matemática
