Machines to think together that “work” should be something else. A conversation with Lorenzo Sandoval

Each event reverberates, relates and activates other actions – physical, conceptual, emotional. In this way, a network of interconnections and analogies can be woven, where subaltern knowledge reaches more spheres and dimensions than a fixed structure would suggest. From this principle, Lorenzo Sandoval has established a work strategy in which he unites the written line, the digit, the non-binary algorithm, the Andean knot, the industrial patterns or the aquatic rhizomes, approaching them from the margins, from the non-canonical stories and the reflection on how to subvert the institutional device. Under the title of Shadow Writings, he presents another stage of this research at the Centro Párraga.

This is a conversation about how this exhibition develops, how it moves us, how history becomes performative and gelified, and how it becomes a collective proposal process, from its conception, realization and exhibition.

Below, list of photos from exhibition in Centro Párraga, Murcia
