Space In Between is delighted to present a group exhibition of new work by four international artists: Sarah Bayliss, María Angélica Madero, Ninna Bohn Pedersen and Belén Zahera.(play)ground-less takes as its starting point a manifesto which outlines a series of theoretical and practical signposts or parameters, creating a structure within which the group of artists have begun to explore a collaborative practice. Working from different countries, and following the idea of ‘play’, an ongoing series of tactics are generated to continually negotiate the terms of the project; tactics applied as interventions to trigger modes of doing, thinking, relating and acting upon , without ever solving a problem or achieving a goal. Instead, the project allows new methodologies and languages to take hold within the production of art works.
In an attempt to reverse the logic of a group show - where works are chosen or produced in order to respond to a previously set idea or topic - (play)ground-less is conceived as an arena to create the material conditions for the exchange and production of knowledge. With a focus on the tension between practice and theory, this exhibition will bring together individual contributions that function as footnotes for a larger collective state of mind.
(play)ground-less includes new sculptural, video and text-based works, appropriated within the larger framework and moderated within the collective. The research will be comprised into a publication that sheds light on the processes, exchanges and conversations that give form to the project and the works in the exhibition.
