Glosopeda, who are Kim Rosario, Barbara Lanzarote and Rachel Lamot, realise digital pieces to be consumed on social media.
The artistic proposal adapts formats, time and concept to the contexts of Instagram and Tiktok, understanding Tiktok and Instagram as a space and not only as a tool. All three artists explore the idea of social media as a decentralised exhibiting space paradigm.
Glosopeda reimagines the past from a neofuture perspective. The Ontology that Never Was recreates an archaeological context in its natural environment intervened by digital materialisation, evoking Gavin Lucas` vision of the material world as an archive of the process of (de)materialisation: The tension between the forces of gathering of materials and artefacts and their opposite entropic force of dispersal. The ontology of the objects and their biographies versus the dispersal, erasure and displacement of their original setting.
The visitors, who appear in the images of Glosopeda play a critical role. They are the humans of a far away future visiting remains of our own immediate future. For the artists, the visitors inform the current spectator about domesticity, attitudes, morphologies and garments of the future.
New editions are in the making and further exploration of XR technologies.
THE ONTOLOGY THAT NEVER WAS
An exhibition takes place in DMS Lat 33° 16' 19.1712'' and DMS Long 35° 12' 12.5532'' in the year 11 a.m.r.w (after the monster rogue wave).
The visitors Ba Bum and Sefkar visit a space, a museum, where archaeological findings of around the time shortly after the big swell are exhibited.
that salty leap into a depth, a last breath, an embracing cool
through steamed glass warped residues as weft, sequence and simulacra
monofin fast they rise to surface
slow viscose stars all around
threads of indigotin weave like time
fringes of light
the corner of the fragment deposits the world
