Info

A phantom limb* is the physical sensation that an amputated body part remains attached. This exhibition applies this phenomenon to cities and architecture in order to see the prosthetic aspects of those in relation to nature. In reference to LiMAC´s condition, a city museum with an invisible building,** this exhibition regroups art works that open space between the seen and the unseen, the present and absence, the prosthetic and amputation.

The exhibition is divided into three parts. The first, Inhabitated Plans, focuses on the internal structures of architecture as its skeleton. The second, Isolated Areas, highlights how the limits of architecture regulate social dynamics as well as flux of information. The third, Open Voids, observes demolition, abandon, uprooting and substitution of buildings as a vital process.

The selected works allude to the multiple “organs” that function in cites: scaffoldings, slums, plumbing pipes, jails gates, bus stops, museums or neighborhoods. As prosthetic extensions, the tension that generate such places of transition, put a light on the foreign, the strange, the phantoms of the city. ***

——

* People who suffer from this condition endure painful itches because of the reduced connections between the nervous system and the brain. The body capacity gives the illusion  that the severed extension is smaller as well as distorted or in uncomfortable position.
