Irati Inoriza presents an audiovisual installation exploring old and new forms of aqueousness and stimulating a fluid experience of the real, moving between the actual, the virtual and the dreamlike.
The artist uses the moving body as a metaphor for something in flux. In this instance a body of water, a leaking body, implies a certain level of porosity between singular/plural, inside/outside and in general between apparent separate entities or realms.
Inside the exhibition, both water and night become a place for intuition, a place where bodies are in fluid relation with nature and technology. Basque mythology, history of art and contemporary culture are used by the artist as references for excavating and foreseeing an interconnected net of relations, made of encounters and collisions that are affecting our individual and social body.
