Espronceda is a cultural hub where creativity, art and education intersect. Whilst home to permanent artists, Espronceda also provides a platform for the dialogue of contemporary art in an international context and, this month, Estonian artist Jaanika Peerna takes to the stage.
Peerna’s long-term interest in transitional phases in our organic surroundings, as well as her signature rhythmic drawing, will come to life in this exhibition. She will create a room-sized installation using large-scale drawings on thin layers of plastic materials and cut the surfaces so that a rhythmic composition is born within the gallery space. Small pigment and graphite drawings that capture collisions of vibrations will also form part of the exhibition, inspired by the recent scientific discovery that detected gravitational waves, the ripples in the fabric of space-time.
For the exhibition opening on April 8th, Lucio Corrente, born in Milan and graduate of piano, percussion and physics, will accompany Jaanika Peerna’s live performance. Corrente takes the vibrations of gravitational waves translated to sound to form his composed musical work. Peerna will step into Corrente’s musical composition with live drawing and movement. Following the success of the two artists’ collaboration at the SG Gallery in Venice and their private performance in New York last year, this is a unique opportunity to catch the innovative pair showcasing their talents.
The live performance on April 8th will take place at 8.30pm. More information here.
