- Installation by Susana Velasco at MUSAC
The MUSAC, Museo di Arte Contemporánea de Castilla y León is showing the exhibition by the Spanish architect Susana Velasco 'A partir de fragmentos dispersos' until 14 January 2018. The designer bases her work on the assumption that architecture is influenced on the one hand by the human bodies that build and inhabit it, and on the other, by the territory it is located in.
So, for her exhibition at MUSAC, during a number of trips across the province of León, an extensive, diversified territory where it is still possible to discover signs of archaic life in objects, actions and rituals Velasco collected elements that articulate a common, shared form of sensitivity.
According to Susana Velasco, these elements that precede architecture as we know it contain some of the keys to understanding the relationship of human beings with their surroundings and show how the forms of architecture are the mediators between the landscape and the human body, between the territory and the social, between the individual and the community.
The exhibition is structured into three sections that occupy the display cases and part of the entry hall of MUSAC: architecture, a collection of objects and a landscape, where the architecture, through the various fragments of the human activities that she found, sets up a new correlation between these things.
During "A partir de frammentos dispersos", MUSAC is publishing the fifth volume of the Arte y Arquitectura AA MUSAC series. This monographic publication dedicated to Susana Velasco includes both the research projects and the works Velasco has completed on the basis of her studies of architecture as a place of mediation.
