As part of our Quantum: In Search of the Invisible expo Julieta Aranda presents her work ‘STEALING ONE'S OWN CORPSE (AN ALTERNATIVE SET OF FOOTHOLDS FOR AN ASCENT INTO DARK) - PART 3 (2018) at iMAL. While we wait to re-open our doors we’re very happy to present you her full trilogy online.
SCREENING: STEALING ONE’S OWN CORPSE (AN ALTERNATIVE SET OF FOOTHOLDS FOR AN ASCENT INTO THE DARK) (2014 - 2018)
Stealing One’s Own Corpse is composed of three parts, a body of work through which Julieta Aranda investigates contemporary existential conditions brought about by scientific and technological developments, as well as the impact of exploiting and depleting the earth’s natural resources and selling them on.
While Politics without Oxygen is partially inspired by Aranda’s residency at CERN, A Possible Scenario and Swimming in Rivers of Glue explore the notions of space, gravity and escapology, the actual practice of escaping. Julieta’s full trilogy is an invitation for the viewer to travel through the concepts of survival and the future of humanity.
