Sips of hope, of desire, of imprecision, of imagination, of looseness, of invention, of history, of context. 

Liquid Moments, a large selection of paintings made with watercolor + drinkable fluids - coffee, rum, tea, milk…) will be on display in the space NuBel by Zacapa in ARCO Madrid, opening Wednesday 27.02 till Sunday 3.03 (public entry days 1,2,3).

Gastronomy space NuBel by Zacapa is a design by Paula Rosales, estudio more&co, located in Pavilion 9 of the art fair. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Rosebud is a new coat hanger designed with old sledge parts by Swiss-based company schnidlersalmerón. With the occasion of its presentation, I will be enacting Rosebud, an act of transferring a large set of clothes from body to body.
Performance #Rosebud for @schindler.salmeron departs from Erwin Wurm’s work Fabio Getting Dressed (Fabio wearing his entire wardrobe), 1992

PERFORMANCE

After an intimate series of making moments with each of my Brussels colleagues at a time, the current sculpture travels to London, where I invite every person part of Adapt-r program to participate in a social performative (and silent) act of wrapping. Together we will wrap the current, chair-sized sculpture, to its temporary home during AmbikaP3 exhibition: a table.

Can "material sex" inform architectural design process?

One of the thrown set of questions during the presentation of my practice (which is the subject of my current PhD research) during my exhibition/presentation at ARM - Architecture Research Moments - event in KU Leuven School of Architecture in Brussels.

Honored to have had a great panel of professionals from LUCA School of Arts, ZHAW in Zurich, KU Leuven Architecture - Sint Lucas  and more.
