In collaboration with Tangent Projects, Lolo & Sosaku present a new installation on at Fundació Gaspar. Gold is an installation in two parts, and as a complementary juxtaposition to this new work, the artists have chosen to include an earlier piece, Dancer (2015), as well. With its visual impact and subtle cadence of movement, Gold stands apart from previous works by the artist duo. Their sculpture has progressed from representing an instrument to become an interpreter of an instrument. In order to gather kinetic, sonic and visual life, Gold moves with the help of an integrated motor while a large golden cloth covers and hides the usual nakedness of its structure. Questions about the content and the superficial arise and add up to a multi-sensorial hypothesis, conducted through the observer. Gold radiates energy and vitality as it manoeuvres with its breath-like motions. By contrast, Dancer – while similarly aided in movement by an electronic motor – is naked, exposed and delicate, yet at the same time does not capitulate to feebleness or fragility, instead revealing strength in ever-changing form and movement. Acting as dual forces, Gold and Dancer communicate with one another through independent rhythmic movements and the reflected light and shadow they create around one another.
