In the Cycles of Time Grows Togetherness

Autumn 2019 - Summer 2021

    “In the Cycles of Time Grows Togetherness” is an ephemeral sculptural intervention that takes place roughly in the middle of each season, always hosted by Volkspark Rehberge. The works are made based on intuitive feelings about the various seasons, reflecting upon what those particular seasons hold. The works are then staged scattered throughout the 78 hectare park. Guests are not given a map, but are verbally told roughly where each work is. This, of course, gives way for people to get slightly lost, which is intentional. People are walking through the park with a heightened awareness, because they are looking for specific things in unspecific areas. In turn, people begin to take notice of the subtleties of the park they’re inhabiting, and the changes that have taken place in both the environment and the works themselves.

For the last iteration of this project, I felt it was important to invite everyone who has been a part of this project to come and help install the works. Reusing pieces that were made in the previous Cycles, one large hanging installation was made. At the end of the day, all the works were then gifted to everyone who came out for the Summer Cycle.

–Sometimes– the proposal is an intervention event and is based on the work processes of artists who have some connection with a very specific location in a more intuitive or less intuitive way. In a place called Bolintxu we can find a natural landscape that has swallowed part of the industrial past of Bilbao's suburbs. The plan is to carry out site-specific interventions along the course of the stream that runs through the forest until it reaches the Bolintxu waterfall. They are destroying that environment to build a road; therefore, it may be a symbolic gesture, almost imperceptible in that reality, but it can add value to the place at the moment the experience is activated.
