To mark the end of Maria Jose Arjona's Occupation (artist residency) the artist will present a solo exhibition and new durational performance.

About

Taking her previous research into 'Aguilas Cuaresmeras' (Colombian eagles) as a point of departure, the artist has spent her Occupation traversing London, imitating the aimless walking of the native pigeons in a strategy to unpick the politics of this space and its human inhabitants.

Exploring socio-political concerns of borders and power dynamics through the relationships between Falconry (used as pest control), pigeons and the built environment, the artist will present her research alongside a new durational performance.

Through this work Arjona conducts a detailed and poetic study of the locale that can be translated into a global statement for human structures of existence.

 

“Birds have a peculiar way to connect events and people. Things that seem very distant appear under their gaze extremely together/close. Their perspective of our world is aerial, giving them an outstanding possibility to connect

with the world beneath

with the world around them

and with us,

humans.

Based in this connectivity that seems sometimes impossible or dissolved by the political environment of the word today, I realized, while walking aimlessly, the beauty embedded in our diversity, in our differences, in the difficulty...In the way we connect beyond the system controlling each of our movements.” - Maria Jose Arjona
