EXERCISES (ON VINYL GLOVES) (by Fernando Hierro)
The possibility of building a work on the reflection of a practice in the becoming of traveling, is the axis of the present installation. Exercises groups and visualizes six years of production in trials, errors and intermittences characteristic of changing residence between Scandinavia, Central America and Buenos Aires. Through the synopsis as a resource, I try to link themes such as migration, notions of identity and the circulation of discursive constructions, which make visible tensions between local and global dynamics.
It is worth mentioning that the present proposal is part of my research and visual exploration platform entitled CORTES / CUTS, opportunely exhibited in two facilities in Sweden (2011) and in El Salvador (2014).
The exhibited work is part of a larger body of work that includes sketches, ephemeral drawings, photographic records, objects, texts and geometric interventions on the wall, which intersect the phenomenal, the epistemological and the topological. Articulated in brief textual reviews under the following headings: i) Search exercise, ii) Exercise on vinyl gloves, iii) Exercise on a snowball and iv) Arm and disarm exercises.
