FECHA DE PUBLICACIÓN
Liminal Rites is published on the occasion of the exhibition Case Report, curated by Lorenzo Sandoval.
NoguerasBlanchard is proud to present the exhibition Case Report, curated by Lorenzo Sandoval (Madrid, 1980) and selected for the first curatorial Open Call organized by the gallery. Case Report brings together artists who employ appropriation of found images, objects and sounds and focuses on their engagement with ethnographical and anthropological processes.
The concept which gives the project its title comes from the field of medicine and suggests a type of anecdotal evidence, a non-scientific observation or study which does not provide proof but may assist research efforts. Although scientifically, a case report is not considered a rigorous process, this type of evidence provides a mechanism to understand the appearance of new and unexpected elements: an intuitive state open to suggestion, appears during investigation. Parting from this idea, the narrative of this exhibition unfolds in a threshold where the fictional, the causal, and the unexpected complete and amplify rather than obscure the overall perception. A cognoscitive exploration of the liminal zone which divides the known from the unknown, the visible and the invisible, language and its absence.
Edition of 150.
