Iratxe Jaio & Klaas van Gorkum
Left Hand Rotation
An exhibition curated by Alba Colomo
Only 15.05.2012 during De Derde Dinsdag
Research by walking works as the beginning of an open work-in-progress project that will be expanded during the curator’s residency at Het Wilde Weten. Focusing on the role of artists in the gentrification processes in the city of Rotterdam, the exhibition puts together a series of research material Alba is using for her project with three works by Iratxe Jaio & Klaas van Gorkum, Kim Bouvy and Left Hand Rotation.
After finishing her Humanities studies at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and King’s College London, Alba Colomo achieved a MA in curating Latin American Art from the University of Essex. Her research focuses on the possibilities of visual art practices to liberate and destabilise the assumptions embedded within our everyday lives.
Her most recent work is the publication Art Control Society, which compiles the work of three artists around the topic of social control.
The curatorial residency of Alba Colombo was made possible by Sala Rekalde/ BizkaiKOA, Bilbao (ES) and is realized in cooperation with TENT.
