Max Estrella presents two special projects for Untitled Art Miami by artist La Ribot and expermiental filmaker Val del Omar.
Val del Omar’s Por aquí ya no hay camino, (There’s no path here anymore), (circa 1961) is one of the first sound work installations presented as a Special Project at Untitled Art and will feature a collection of sounds from the artist’s lab, which he called PLAT (Picto Lumínica Audio Tactil) comprising of recordings from his movies, radio recordings, family conversations and reflections.
La Ribot’s Walk the Authors , is an installation made up of a variable number of wooden folding chairs, economic and mass produced, covered with text inscribed into them with fire. These chairs have formed a fundamental part of La Ribot’s work. The author invites us to to take up a chair and patiently try to read what is written. To do this you need to use your body and work with the chair, opening and closing both, turning, and lowering. You have to involve yourself with the chair: touch it, squat by it, kneel and lean. You can start reading the stories of Geneviève, Kim, María José, Tamara, Señora Caetano, or Carles from the point marked with a small section of blue tape or piece of wire.
