The Title of the Exhibition Changed Every Hour
This publication is a continuation of Gabriel Sierras site-specific installation project at the Renaissance Society in 2015, the Bogotá-based artist’s first solo show in the United States. Designed by Studio Manuel Raeder in close collaboration with the artist and edited by Gabriel Sierra and curator Solveig Øvstebø, the book expands on and further examines the topics and ideas of the exhibition.
Sierra is intrigued by the language of the spaces in which we live, work, and think. His practice employs a variety of techniques –from sculpture and spatial interventions to performance and texts– to examine how the human body functions in relation to its environment. His project at the Renaissance Society consisted of a group of constructions to stand in, walk over, or lie down in, and relating abstractly to the idea of inhabiting different moments of space and time. The title of the exhibition changed every hour to frame the specific moment in which the visitor experienced the work.
