Gastón Pérsico. La música es mi casa en el Museo de Arte Latinoamericano MALBAGastón Pérsico
La música es mi casa
Curator: Mariano Mayer
Galery 1, Level -1
The bulk of the work produced by Gastón Pérsico (Buenos Aires, 1972) consists of assemblage sculptures, publications, and installations; his art constitutes a setting where an array of his personal interests comes together. In keeping with that spirit, the exhibition project La música es mi casa revolves around the themes of coexistence and sound experience as it encompasses a range of disciplines (the visual arts, poetry, music, and graphic design).
Those elements act as indexes that at once interrogate and facilitate recognition of the situations and things that enable sound experience. A space born of a synthesis of languages, this exhibition makes reference to different situations where it is possible to reflect on perceptive experience. The proposal attempts to formulate unlikely relationships that give shape to different layers of meaning and experience. Awareness that in any perception, the body is present; it is there, being affected by another body is key to displacing the viewer from the position of reader of signs to a subjective position to which the body is central.
The central piece, the one for which the project is named, consists of an audio recording in which two actors (a female voice and a male voice) recite the lyrics of a house music set translated into Spanish and reproduced without the music. The work is an exercise in translation between media that crosses references between discotheques and concrete poetry, between the body and its absence and language. The voices make themselves heard throughout an exhibition space that also houses different sculptures made by deconstructing an array of architectural environments and materials used in domestic furniture, discotheques, practice rooms, and concerts.
Due to its very nature, La música es mi casa engages different disciplines, sources, references, and quotes to form a conversation. It operates, then, as an open space in which guest artists are invited to intervene.
