Testing Grounds

ARTISTS: GREG MCLAREN/ RICHARD DEDOMENICI/ ANDRES GALEANO/ DEBORA CARNEVALI RAMIREZ/ OMAR GONGORA GUZMAN AND OMAR ROSILES

Jules Verne�s 1873 novel Around The World In Eighty Days coincided with the emergence of the international travel-network and anticipated the massive technology-led shift in the world�s collective consciousness: that we consider our connections across the planet not in terms of space, but in terms of time.

Borrowing Julio Cortazar�s 1967 delirious Dada disquisition Around The Day In Eighty Worlds, we ask: How might live artists learn to navigate within this time-space?

For this edition of Testing Grounds, happening simultaneously in the UK (The Basement, Brighton), and Mexico (La Periferia, Merida) and connected via live internet video stream, six artists will create trajectories between two audiences: The real and the remote.

La Periferia, Merida, is an independent contemporary art project with a trans-disciplinary vision.

Essentially experimental, art seeks to investigate new ways of seeing � Testing Grounds is a Live Art organisation supportive of artistic risks, commissioning artists to make and present new work.

Co-produced with the Basement (UK) and La Periferia (Mexico)
