Waving is based on the project developed in the municipal production center and proposes a series of pieces halfway between drawing, audiovisual and sculpture. In the fold of sculpture and cinema there is a return to the material and spatial quality of what is seen as film or video, a highlighting of a mechanism of light projection on a series of images. In cinematic representation, movement seems inherent to form; It is and makes the form, its form. Applying cinematographic thinking to other media, he explores an expanded body image, more blurred, more indefinite, without clear contours.


In her practice Marta van Tartwijk (Barcelona, 1990) explores how the image can access personal experience, operate as a hinge that articulates time, context and subjective experiences, experimenting with the body and language. She has a degree in art from the UCM, and she completed her training at ESAB (France), at the University of Barcelona, A*Desk and the Francisco Alcántara Ceramic School. She has held various exhibitions in institutions such as INJUVE, TEA, La Capella, Sala de Arte Joven, Fabra i Coats, Sant Andreu Contemporani or Matadero among others. She has held residencies in BilbaoArte, Dos Mares and Tabakalera. She has also been a finalist for the Getxoarte or Miquel Casablancas Prize and has been awarded in Plastic Arts Circuts.
