Carlos Casas: Fieldworks
05.08.2023 - 10.09.2023
curated by Stefano Miraglia & Jessica Macor
Opening : SATURDAY AUGUST 5th, 2023 from 18:00 at La Rada
Fieldworks is Carlos Casas' first solo exhibition in Switzerland, entirely dedicated to the eponymous series that the Spanish artist has been developing since 2000. Fieldworks are a collection of experimental audiovisual notes with which the artist seeks to capture the atmospheric and spiritual qualities of a place, using image and sound as spatial reading tools. Stemming from extensive travels to more than twenty countries, this series has led to the creation of dozens of videos, sound works and installations, divided into thirty chapters.
A transversal selection of films is proposed for the exhibition at La Rada: from the earliest (shot in Patagonia, the Aral Sea, and Siberia) created for monitor installations, to the most recent (Apulia, Iceland, Indonesia) that will be screened in a specially created environment in the large room. Meditations on the archetypes of nature and man, descriptions of atmospheric phenomena, experiments on the limits of vision, and psychedelic interventions in which cinema transfigures territorial experience.
