Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents the work of artist and filmmaker Alex Reynolds (b. 1978, Bilbao) curated by Manuel Cirauqui.
This exhibition presents three recent works by Reynolds, between which a triangulation of ideas—the norm, the acting hand, the singing voice—circulates ceaselessly. The musicality of the exhibition’s title is itself reminiscent of the song structure, and accompanies the viewer throughout her visit like a ritornello.
Her work explores our modes of relation and affection, particularly as they appear embodied in the cinematic language. Altering narrative structures, commands and rhythms in production, playing with the conventions of acting and storytelling, as well as the role of the viewer in them, the artist finds ways to defy our perception beyond the perimeter of the screen and the realm of images. Thus she transforms objects and events in and out of the exhibition space as well, suspending the automatisms of meaning.
