What do we do?

"Sin (Con)Texto" (Without (With)Text) initiated the need to publicize our work painting and sculpture, and do it in an appropriate space.

This that seems so simple, it's really complicated today. We are three artists, three women from different backgrounds: a Catalan, a Cantabrian and Switzerland, we understand that if we do not speak of art, and therefore it seems as if no one make art. Not true. Some people make art, good art, but nobody speaks it. This is the origin of this whole event: What if art exhibits, while talking about art?

The theme of the meaning of art is a recurring theme and present in our day to day, but you do not look at every day of all. ** We have to believe that most are not "gifted" the ability to understand art. ** We would like you to help us a little break this dogma. And if it were not necessary to understand art? And if anyone has told us that the true art does not have any meaning? It is not a new topic, but it is a topic which is discussed shortly, carrying only test ... but maybe it is new to you and many others.

Not everyone will agree, and that is fine too. It may not reach any consensus, but only made sure we speak provide the opportunity to enjoy art without many complex imposed.

That's all that "Sin (Con)Text" includes a set of actions (plastic art exhibition, live arts (performance) cultural debate, children's workshop).

Why organize a fundraising micro-patronage?

Today it is very difficult to create. There are many activities and things difficult way, but I must say that all the creative, artistic and cultural, is in really precarious situation ... The materials are expensive, slow processes, space to work and no longer say to keep the backlog is a luxury ... and it does not have ability to show it to anyone, not even thinking ... When we sell it is an act of faith, not to dramatize but without faith, you probably do not paint or sculpt anyone.

And we have a lot of faith in our work, particularly in the art, and culture in general, and for this and the precarious situation in which we live (artistically speaking) we need the cooperation of citizens to to carry out projects like this. We need you, and this is not a slogan.The event will exist, but only if we collect these contributions, we can do it with quality and promoting more appropriate in order to talk about art and culture and also because the voices of so many anonymous creators reach the ears many.

Many people believe that art is a luxury, not a necessity, but without art and culture ... where we would go to stop? We believe that if we talk about art, if we talk about culture, creates art, generated culture. And do not "understand". Just need to "feel".

The art process by Coral Rivero

The art process Tanja Rinderknecht

The art process by Ade Marcos

The meaning is part of the art is a imposture or required by a company short-sighted? The meaning of the artwork comes through language and, therefore, the text often accompanies the works and exhibitions grounds, relating, literaritzant meaning. Often the meaning subsequently joined the work and not always comes from the same creator ... The art work is by itself artifact or artefact and text are another category of work that transforms in art? In addition to the text, another factor that determines and sometimes even transforms the device into a work of art is the context in which it appears. The question arises again: the device by itself is art or art is the sum of the device and text, or text device is even located in a particular context that shapes the work of art? Hence the pun that forms the title of the proposed event: With / Without text With / Without context.

How we want to do?

To create a body, a form, to explain all these scattered thoughts, we have developed a kind of map, an itinerary of actions once they are woven between them (the word text comes from the Latin word "tissue" ) form a tapestry that will become the body of this debate. Do not argue no particular meaning, but we hope that it will provide every sense. These actions are:

  • Exhibition plastic art of these three artists, the sculpt-paintings by Ade Marcos, paintings by Coral Rivero and sculptures by Tanja Rinderknecht, all of these specially selected for this event, and all of these are created from the perspective of not meaning nothing, but yes sense. The installation of the works looks for the more authentic gaze of each viewer, less distorted by the prejudices of education, and general trends of society we live in. Like naive gaze of the child within us. We will try to implement virtual technology so that you will enjoy an experience for exciting your senses, and without text and context ... Get ready!

Ha sido una semana muy completa... el catálogo en el horno, carteles varios, redacción de presentación para hoja de sala, distribución de obras sobre modelo de la sala, recepción de bastidores para montar algunas de las obras recientes, últimos retoques a algunas piezas (barnizados, tensados...), reunión y matices de acabados sobre la tecnología que aplicaremos, para que todo esté perfecto, contactar con algunos colaboradores para confirmar horarios y detalles varios sobre su intervención, gestiones de logística para disponer a tiempo de equipos de sonido, audio, proyector, imagen... también logística de transporte de las obras desde los 3 estudios hasta Can Manyé...

En fin... ha llegado el viernes y todo lo anterior ha culminado en un simple: ¡Biennn!

¡Ya estamos en Can Manyé! Han llegado las obras, han llegado los catálogos, el vinilo y sobretodo hemos llegado las 3 artistas cargadas de ilusión y ganas de trabajar.

#08 / El catálogo está en el horno...

Al fin se pudo empezar la impresión y manipulación del catálogo... Hemos estado controlando con mucho mimo hasta el último detalle. Hemos podido estar presentes en todo el proceso de impresión para revisar, corregir y ajustar cada detalle... la presión de los rodillos sobre el papel, la rotación del papel, las curvas de tono del color...

Ha sido una experiencia increíble. Muchas horas de dedicación en la edición, maquetación, ajustes, redacción, traducción, corrección... y otra corrección, y otra corrección... Nunca parece perfecto. Hasta que sale limpiamente por esa impresora y cobra cuerpo... , varias tiradas fallidas, última revisión... ¡Ahora! Y pasamos a guillotina...

#07 / Taller infantil? "Allò que passa quan no hi ha competència, ni judici..."

Estem ultimant els detalls que faran del taller infantil de Sin (Con)Texto, una acció artística molt especial pels nostres fills, com a complement a la nostra exposició artística. Pren nota!:

Serà el diumenge 26 de febrer al Centre d'Art i Pensament Contemporani Can Manyé, a Alella.

Veniu a les 12h. i passarem una bona estona!

En paraules de l'Arno Stern: (Ima Sanchís: Què ha observat (en referència al taller de Le Closlieu)?) "Allò que succeeix quan no hi ha competència, ni judici, ni objectius, quan es desenvolupa una activitat creadora en cada qual, sense jerarquies per edat ni classes socials, sense mestre". (La Contra. La Vanguardia, 02/02/2017)

La Coral Rivero ha seguit els últims temps el treball de l'Arno Stern i recentment ha assistit a la formació intensiva "Principis de l'Educació… read more

#06 / INCREÍBLE ¡Todo por el arte, por la música, por la cultura! Sin (Con)Texto va a sonarte

Las cosas pasan por alguna razón... o no. A menudo en la vida no levatamos la mano y nos parece que es lo natural (para algunos, pero quizá no es tan habitual para la generación selfie) pero algunos otros hemos crecido en la educación del "sé discreta", "no llames la atención", "no des de qué hablar", "no seas vanidosa".... y todo tiene un origen y seguramente un por qué, pero con el tiempo eso ya no vale, o almenos ya no importa. Un día, no sabes muy bien cómo, levantas la mano, y pasan cosas, muchas cosas. Y es que, ¡además son buenas!

A parte de tecnología para potenciar nuestro proyecto, a la que no hubiéramos podido acceder sin los mecenas, ahora unos increíbles músicos nos dicen: nosotros podríamos venir a tocar a Sin (Con)Texto... Y notas que se te corta el aliento. Vengaaa.... ¿es una broma? ¡Y no es una broma!

¡Tendremos Jazz en directo para la exposición! Será la mañana del sábado 25/02, a cargo de dos grandes músicos :

¡Mil Gracias a Pep Mendoza y Joan Francesc Romero!


Aún estamos sin palabras...

La empresa de tecnología Visyon360 (http://visyon360.com/) , pionera en aplicar tecnología de Realidad Virtual, Realidad Augmentada, 360º y mucho más, ha decidido apostar por el arte y la cultur: Visyon apuesta por nuestro proyecto "Sin (Con) Texto" a través de su línea "Social Innovation" y nos ofrece toda la tecnología a su alcance para ofrecer a la sociedad nuevas formas más inmersivas de experimentar el arte.

Estamos proyectando dos posibles instalaciones diferenciadas con dos tipos de tecnología que se integren en la exposición y enriquezcan la experiencia de todos de forma exponencial...

Cuéntaselo a tus contactos y anímalos a que nos ayuden a alcanzar el objetivo.

¡¡Gracias Visyon!!

#03 / Wowww !!!

No sé què dir-vos... emocionades, súper agraïdes... i també un pèl espantades per la responsabilitat i la proximitat dels fets, cal dir-ho... Però gairebé ja està aquí! Ho farem possible!!

Anem rebent la vostra empenta amb mooolta il·lusió... no sabeu ni com!!

Més d'un any de feina al darrera, uns quants entrebancs, poc o nul recolzament inicial, però quant tot comença a agafar forma, hem sabut anar convencent tothom d'un projecte de qualitat, fet amb molt de rigor i les portes s'han anat obrint. Amb vosaltres i d'altres mecenes que des de fora del Verkami ja venen posant el seu granet de sorra... No tenim paraules més adients: Gràcies!!

Una forta abraçada!

Seguim treballant...

#02 / Traducción de la campaña al Castellano, para todos vosotros!

Por fin lanzamos la campaña en castellano para muchos de nuestros amigos, familiares... para todos vosotros.

En breve dispondréis de la versión en inglés, ya que os lo váis pidiendo. Si alguien requiere otro idioma para entenderlo mejor, sólo tenéis que comentarlo.

Estamos también trabajando en la maquetación del Libro-Catálogo, en el que probablemente disfrutaréis de un nuevo texto de un autor adicional, que confirmaremos en breve. Esto mejora el catálogo, sin duda.

¡Seguimos adelante!
