PROject (eng)

The artistic project "hétérotopie" is a contemplation of women inhabiting personal spaces through their body. Places that open up in lapses of time in which they dive into their own imaginary. 

Heterotopia is a word that comes from the greek: hetero, “other” and topos, “places”. This is a concept from french philosopher Michel Foucault. He uses it to define places that seem irrelevant but that are necessary and that exist physically and mentally at the same time. For example the moment of a phone call o when oneself watch itself in the mirror.

The motivation of this project is to create a serie of intimate pieces in order to explore these “other spaces and places”. A game to shape women’s human and emotional geography.

PROYECTO (ES)

El proyecto artístico "hétérotopie" nos lleva a contemplar el cuerpo femenino habitando lugares personales. Espacios que se abren en momentos del tiempo en los que la mujer se sumerge en un imaginario propio.

Heterotopía es una palabra que proviene del griego: hetero, “otro” y topos, “lugar”. Es un concepto que hemos descubierto a través del filósofo Michel Foucault, que lo utiliza para definir espacios que parecen irrelevantes pero que se demuestran necesarios y que son al mismo tiempo físicos y mentales. Como por ejemplo el tiempo de una llamada de teléfono o el momento de verse reflejado en un espejo.

El objetivo de este proyecto es la creación de una serie de piezas íntimas para explorar estos “otros espacios y lugares”.  Jugar a dibujar geografías corporales y emocionales femeninas.

I met Jonatham one afternoon in the street of Berlin. We spend the afternoon together, walking in the turkish neighborhood while I listened to his life's story. What had happened in Vladivostok? What was before the escape? What motivated the run away? Occident, now wandering your streets.
