The Swedish artist Paulina Wallenberg-Olsson will activate this Saturday, October 20th, the installation Writing Corpora, byGary Hill, considered one of the pioneers of video art. Writing Corpora is part of Active Presence, exhibition co-produced by LABoral in Gijón and MARCO, Museo de Arte Contemporánea de Vigo. The exhibition, curated by Sergio Edelsztein, Director of the Center for Contemporary Art in Tel Aviv, and Kathleen Forde, Artistic Director of Contemporay Borusan Istanbul, analyzes the role of the artist and the viewer and the infinite possibilities of interaction between them through the work of 12 international artists.


Writing Corpora is about translation. The expressions are translated from English into Spanish and vice versa, and from the spoken language to the physical language. In addition, through technology the artist’s body is ‘translated’ into a virtual existence in which the artist himself is given form. However the translations are quickly found to be impossible and start a chain of distortion and paucity of which the viewer is also a part, since he or she interacts with the artist’s virtual presence and the ‘materialised’ phrases.
