The project, site-specific for Monasterio de San Juan in Burgos and commisioned by Ayuntamiento de Burgos and organized by LIBRARTE, is based on the concept of passing pages-expanded artist notebooks and made up of two installations:
This installation consists of an area that represents the head of an artist at the moment of facing a blank page. The projectors draw with light the evanescent ideas of the artist who seeks inspiration from multiple resources. Simulating electrodes that read chain thinking, synchronized sensors will allow the visualization of the video sequences that will be projected on nine white notebooks, depending on the visitor's position.
Two-channel video installation with videos found on Youtube about artists turning pages of their own artist books. The central axis of this installation is none other than exploring the immense audiovisual resource of artists' books on platforms such as YouTube. An unconventional exhibition format or process where the physical book is exposed virtually, acquiring a new form of representation. The object, the book, is transformed to add new elements to the image, such as the artist's hands turning its pages, and thus acquires a new meaning. 100 videos have been selected from the youtube platform, with very low visitor statistics, with a common theme and form: artists 'books, notebooks, paper, and artists' hands that turn their pages to show their work to the viewer. Some books by artists who want to be seen, to have permanence, displacing the virtual and digital, to connect with the memory of the viewer and thus fixate on the material. The process of [Show] is as interesting as the [Object] that is shown. An archive or collection of experiences re-elaborated to regain the attention of the viewer who did not grant interest in a platform saturated with images where experience and perception are fragmented and labeled.
"Turning the page" is an expression that we commonly use to advance in time, go forward, close cycles, experiences, affections; as if this act were an imperceptible movement of the passage of time. Adding a s and gerund -turning page (s) - proposes the viewer to pass by to see, walk, take a tour accompanying the artist along a path that is that of an open book, perceiving ourselves more and more, and as the pages of the book pass, time passes and keeps the memory.
