Nora Aurrekoetxea Etxebarria – I am a body in a body of air

Tentoonstelling t/m 26-06-2024 > Amsterdam
P/////AKT Nora Aurrekoetxea Etxebarria – I am a body in a body of air
my studio based practice departs from a sculptural way of building installations
as a relational space, 
a system where unpredicted dialogues happen in interdependency between

and bodies
creating layers of meaning
where everything alters and interrelates with each other
                                being the instability of narratives
                                             the structure of it.

For her solo project at P/////AKT Nora Aurrekoetxea Etxebarria (Bilbao, 1989) is presenting an experimentation with the material and formal properties of airbeds, reflecting on the temporality of the domestic object and the choreography implicated in its usage. This choreography also extends to the bodies that interface with the object, relating to the ephemeral shape that a body assumes in relationship with the furniture that hosts it. ?The matrasses, rolled up to fit a wooden support structure to contain their form, are casted in order to present their inside surface as a shape and as a space: in between the mattress and the body that lies on it; folding and unfolding, air moving in and moving out.
Aurrekoetxea is a current resident at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten. She graduated in Fine Arts from the University of the Basque Country ( 2013 ) and completed her MA Sculpture at the Royal College of Art in London (2019). In parallel she studied a postgraduate course in Sexology at Incisex, Madrid (2013) and is a founding director of artist-run space OKELA in Bilbao.
P/////AKT Amsterdam

P/////AKT is a non-profit exhibition space for contemporary art that organizes and facilitates large scale solo presentations through which the audience gets the opportunity to gain insight in the thinking space of the artists.

P/////AKT provides a platform for exceptional, emerging artistic talents, who distinguish themselves through their unique and authentic language and who are capable of giving a different view on the current way of thinking. They are stimulated to work out new developments and are given the opportunity to present their work to a relevant audience. Furthermore, P/////AKT always asks the artists to produce new work that relates to the specific nature and dimensions of the given space and to present their own mental space as an overall presentation within the given context.
