Anna Irina Russell + Roc Jiménez de Cisneros

Lorem Ipsum

MACBA 08/07

Light, altered states of perception, sensory liquidity, deconstruction of the rave culture... You will find all of this in the initial collaboration between two artists who have created a site-specific production for the MACBA venue.

How do we communicate and interact? Anna Irina Russell investigates it from a playful perspective, creating absurd situations and experiences that look at established social conventions with a critical eye. For Russell, resident artist at Hangar, distortion and noise are tools for talking about reality, and our way of understanding it. At MACBA, she has worked on the creation of a site-specific production with Roc Jiménez de Cisneros, a member of the computer-music project group EVOL. This artist, with a particular interest in the rave culture and in ways of deconstructing it, has presented her work in art centres in Europe, America and Asia.

The Lorem Ipsum series, named after the Latin expression used in graphic design for typographical demonstrations and false modelling designs, is back, bringing you music and fun from the fringes. It does so by bringing to its audiences artists who possess their own, unique aesthetics, who blur the boundaries between disciplines, use their creations as a testing ground and place the spotlight on racialised, sexualised, dissident bodies and emerging women artists.

A 2021 Barcelona Grec Festival and Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art co-production.
