“Sublevación Abril”, the project by Petia Cervera (or Marla Jacarilla and José Begega) that we talked about last Wednesday, plays with manipulation from many different angles.
The manipulation in the work by Petia; Marla and José’s manipulation of their public –or the Sala d’Art Jove-; the manipulation in the story; the evolution of things and human relationships. Manipulating the spectator.
In a piece that sets out to critique the art environment of its proximity, the relation with the deceit of its very trajectory becomes obvious, suffocating at this stage of the “Sublevación de Abril”. As ever, one has to read between the lines, but more to the point here one can. A prize to whoever manages.
