• Translating Amor y Pedagogia - ‘Love and Pedagogy’ – by Miguel de Unamuno

Cruz, Juan, 2015, Show, Exhibition or Event, Translating Amor y Pedagogia - ‘Love and Pedagogy’ – by Miguel de Unamuno

Abstract or Description:

An oral translation of the short novel by Miguel de Unamuno 'Love and Pedagogy' undertaken through performances streamed remotely from other places. The translation was recorded and archived to be available in the space and on-line.

The performances took place in various locations in London, throughout the run of the exhibition, and were streamed live to a computer in the gallery in Deptford. I made audio visual recordings of the performances via the streaming media, which located me as the performer alongside the viewers in a single split image. These recordings were then archived in a shared folder held between the gallery and me, and which visitors to the exhibition could access when a performance was not taking place.

The work extends my concerns with translation and performance, and with a consideration of how the mechanism of the gallery and the exhibition might be used to generate innovative viewing engagements facilitated by technology. The work also attempts to develop thinking and practice around the relationship between art works and their documentation - in this case the documentation and even its potential for distribution is generated as the work comes into being.
