DANIEL CANOGAR. Teratologies
Video from the MEIAC Collection
01.11.2019 - 08.12.2019

Curatorship: Adelaide Ginga

This exhibition, held in partnership with MEIAC, inaugurates an exchange program between the two institutions, which includes selected video works exhibited in Sala Sonae in recent years, and which will now be part of the Badajoz museum program.

This installation by Daniel Canogar makes use of digital languages to address the relationship between art and science and the issue of human vulnerability in relation with the advancement of technology. This work presents microorganisms found in the human body, such as viruses, bacteria and parasites, which invade the exhibition space. Upon entering the room, the audience interrupts the projections and becomes a kind of projection screen itself. Teratologies metaphorically pollute the body of the public.
