Amalia Pica Performance: A ∩ B ∩ C

UNDER THE SAME SUN - ACCOMPANYING EVENT

EVERY SAT, 11 JUN - 3 SEP, 1PM, FREE, MAIN GALLERY

Overview

In A ∩B ∩C  artist Amalia Pica invites performers to manipulate translucent coloured shapes, producing new configurations that use abstraction and intersection as an invitation to reimagine forms of collaboration and community.

Performance will occur every Saturday throughout the Under The Same Sun: Art From Latin America Today exhibition.

In her 2011 work Venn Diagrams (under the Spotlight), a forerunner to A ∩ B ∩ C, Amalia Pica uses overlapping circles of coloured light to refer to 1970s Argentina. During this period, set theory was forbidden from being taught in elementary classes in response to a concern that it might ultimately prompt citizens to conspire against the military junta. In A ∩ B ∩ C, Pica invites performers to manipulate translucent coloured shapes, producing new configurations that, emancipated from the historical anecdote, use abstraction and intersection to reimagine forms of collaboration and community.

Acrylic and occasional performance, overall dimensions variable.
