Choreographic work premiered at the GUGGENHEIM BILBAO museum
on the occasion of the exposition ARCHITECTURE EFFECTS
PHYSICAL CONSTRUCTION PROCESSES
The Architecture Effects exhibition, which celebrated the connections between art and architecture, opened at the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum in December 2018. Puzzling, a project centered on physical construction processes, was presented for this occasion at the Atrium of the museum. The choreography was originally created from a series of drawings, which the performers themselves created and used as graphic scores. The content was also inspired by a number of three dimensional objects made by local visual artist Mabi Revuelta.
Puzzling is an ongoing study on the architecture of the individual and the temporal and spatial arrangement of the body in motion. Mai Ishiwata, Robert Jackson and Blanca Arrieta compose, order and disarrange their own choreographic materials. Through this self-construction process they transcend their structural dimension, establishing their own exchange dynamics and promoting experiences in relation to space, perception and individuality.
This project, moreover, is born with the idea of finding new ways to interact with the audience outside their usual spaces of representation. It takes shape in very diverse contexts: museums, exhibition halls, singular architectural buildings and spaces that allow proximity. Puzzling recognize the changing nature of the relationships generated, both in space and with the observer, exploring their possibilities.
