Risk Colour Book

22.05

Risk Colour Book is the result of an encounter between two bodies of work, both involved with the concept of risk. Whether we are dealing with an inventory of toxic pigments and their possible secondary effects or with a performance recreating the moment when a pedestrian is struck by a car, Gustavo Artigas explores the various possible kinds of risk, disasters and accidents. Through recording, repetition and the staging of action, Artigas exposes the fragility of the body, subjected to a cunningly latent violence.
