Dynasty, gaps of a continuous, a proposal by Jessica Salinas, investigates the formal codes related to the reproduction mechanisms of social power. The exhibition display combines documents, architectural features and portraits that refers directly to the sociological question of reproduction and to its aesthetic manifestations.
"Using images of portraits in small format paintings profiling specific social key characters, and projecting videos and documents that establish positions of corporate and institutional relationships, Jessica displays models of social reference for established power networks whose engagement strategies can be recognize, as well as the economic and cultural fields where such things happens." (Francisco Benítez. February 2012.)
Since 2007 Homesession has been a catalyst of the creation in the field of visual arts, through an international residency programme and production grants for Spanish artists. With its continued effort to support artists and promote art, Homesession welcomes proposals that utilise diverse media and practices, with a strong focus on interdisciplinary experimentation.
This work is being done in an atypical space in Barcelona´s Poble Sec neighbourhood, a former shop, now converted into a loft, to which a new location was added in 2012. Homesession intends to complement the work of the institutions in Barcelona's art scene: it gives a home to proposals that are daring and innovative as much in their contents as in their format and aesthetics, making room for the unexpected.
