Parallel Oaxaca is proud to present its first collaboration with Oaxaca based artist Sergio Gutierrez, the exhibition “The double vision” combines a series of graphic events looking to corporeal experience as a movile entity tracing architectural, objetual and perceptual spaces.
Sergio Gutiérrez´ practice use drawing as a reflexion zone, a complementary time to observation which acts intuivitively as a temporal emplacement in the imaginary. By recovering and redirecting luminous variations, temperatures and sounds between materials and their physical reactions to space, Gutiérrez interest in the corporeal and temporal dimensions of the image include a possibility of interaction with vistors.
“The double vision” implies the exploration and use of corporeal resources relative to the movements of rotating and extending a body, where the works are originated by the interplay of sight and touch in actions such as trace, impact, expand, mould, add, substract, place, handle, contain, hook, rotate and register.
Translating the graphic elements of point, line and plane to tridimensional forms, “The double vision” generates tactile wanderings through ceramic surfaces, being manipulated as tools to trace (contours and perimeters), and measure (volume, consistency, duration and distance), in which visitors will have the option of roaming, handle, place and re-trace its physical relation to space.
