El Espacio Odeón - Centro Cultural y Rincón Projects presentan Casting LOS PELIGROS DE LA OBEDIENCIA. Un proyecto de la artista visual Itziar Barrio donde se explora, através de las metodologías propias de un casting, las dinámicas de poder y las situaciones construidas. Casting LOS PELIGROS DE LA OBEDIENCIA pone en juego el deseo y la voluntad de los actores por ser reconocidos y obtener el trabajo. Ubicándolos dentro de parámetros ficticios y reales, ya sea a través de guiones de cine o de su propia vida, Barrio revela la formación del poder a través de la seducción.


Moving Image Contours: Points for a Surrounding Movement

Curated by Soledad Gutiérrez and Anna Manubens

The exhibition reflects  on the concept of the audiovisual from the outside, seeking references and relationships with other languages or situations where it is hybridised. 

On the occasion ofthe exhibition Moving Image Contours, Itziar Barrio continues her ongoing project All of us Want to Work Less with a video work titled All of us want to work less (The Theft) , which takes place in Tabakalera. The rehearsal and development work in the building will finalise with a performance/shoot on the last day (September 18, 2015).

The working material for the performance/shoot, a piece in collaboration with Guillem del Mont de Palol and Jorge Dutor, are pickpocketting scenes from Robert Bresson’s feature Pickpocket (1959). The reconstruction of these and other scenes from the film in which the social use of stealing is questioned are the focus of All of us want to work less (The Theft). The project explores the relationship between work and legality, while foregrounding process as a mode to question the audiovisual apparatus.

    Calle 59 # 3A-51,  Studio 104 (Cooperartes)
    Bogotá, Colombia.
    http://rinconprojects.com/

    Rincón Projects is pleased to announce the first exhibition of the Videowall program, THE MUSIC YOU WANT ME TO HEAR, by artist Itziar Barrio.

    The pieces presented at Rincón Projects relate to Barrio’s ongoing project THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE that mixes performance, theater, film and live experience to confront established sets of rules and cultivate the conditions for unscripted consequences. Inspired by the findings of Stanley Milgram’s 1961 psychological experiments, THE PERILS centers on four characters immersed in power dynamics within the same scene in an endless conflict. THE MUSIC YOU WANT ME TO HEAR is a video created from the footage of the live audition/performance to cast the actors of THE PERILS iteration in New York City. Because society tells me (as Tarantino said), a silkscreen on black latex, refers the viewer to a visual imaginary of desire and domination.

    http://www.macba.cat/en/mev-itziar-barrio

    The iconic scene from Basic Instinct (1992) is used by Itziar Barrio as the starting point for All of Us Want to Work Less, a performance that manipulates the methodology of the rehearsal and reveals the mechanisms that exist behind a production. The artist has created a monologue that states the position of the character through a text that questions the learning process and failure as a condition.

    El Museo de Los Sures and the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) are pleased to announce Itziar Barrio’s three month residency at El Museo.

    While in residence at El Museo de Los Sures, Barrio will finalize a series of sculptural pieces, silkscreens and videos related to her continuing work THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE, recently in production at Abrons Art Center. 

    In THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE, a long term project exploring power dynamics and constructed situations Barrio mixes performance, theater, film and live experience to confront established sets of rules and cultivate the conditions for unscripted consequences. Inspired by the findings of Stanley Milgram’s 1961 psychological experiments, in THE PERILS the four characters are immersed in power dynamics within the same scene and an endless conflict.  Visitors to the El Museo will be invited to see the works in progress and discuss components of the projects with Barrio.

    The Abrons Arts Center is proud to present Rehearsal THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE by artist Itziar Barrio. As the next stage of her ongoing project titled THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE, Barrio continues her exploration of power dynamics and constructed situations.
    Rehearsal TPO is a performance that manipulates the methods of a rehearsal, revealing the mechanisms used behind the scenes of a production. Repetition and variation are taken to the extreme to expand the possibilities of the performance. Blurring the fine line between the persona and the character, the performers’ desires and motivations are exposed, creating intensified moments.
    As the next part of THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE, a long term project that researches power and its diverse embodiments, Barrio mixes performance, theater, film and live experience to confront established sets of rules and cultivate the conditions for unscripted consequences.

    http://adhocgaleria.com/web/project/the-music-you-want-me-to-hear/

    adhoc gallery is pleased to present the exhibition THE MUSIC YOU WANT ME TO HEAR. The artist Itziar Barrio presents new and recently produced works around the ideas of power dynamics, desire, and constructed situations and realities. This exhibition is a collection of different pieces, each with its own meaning and individual characteristics. In relationship to each other they build a narrative underlaid by the dialogue between public and private, fiction and non-fiction, and the deconstruction of the cinematographic apparatus.

    In the words of David Markus (Art in America):

    (…) At the heart of Casting THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE is a commentary on the desire for public affirmation. Confronted with questions such as, “are you a good liar?” actors were forced to weigh their privacy against the seductiveness exerted by the cameras, the casting director, and the unwittingly implicated audience. This exploration of the queasier underpinnings of spectacle was punctuated by a segment involving the recitation of a famous monologue from the film All About Eve (1950) in which the title character, a wannabe starlet, exults in the “waves of love” that pour over the performer when the audience applauds—when it’s clear that “they want you.”

    Sounding the Social by David Markus / Art in America

    The fantasy of public adulation is a recurrent theme in the work of Basque artist Itziar Barrio. In We could have had it all (2012-13), a multimedia artwork inspired by the chorus to Adele’s 2010 hit single “Rolling in the Deep,” Barrio reflects on the relationship between illusory pursuits of fulfillment and the power exerted by the image of the popular artist.

    http://www.artinamericamagazine.com/news-features/magazine/sounding-the-social/


    Article about ¨Casting THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE¨ by Xavier Acarín (A*Desk)

    With this piece Barrio continues working in the divide between fiction and non-fiction, in a game that captures the public in an unexpected situation, where it becomes difficult to distinguish what is real: the personal stories where the actors and actresses reveal their true selves from the established structure that strips away the processes that power inhabits, and between them love and desire. As Eve would say: “Knowing that every night, hundreds of different people love you, smile at you, a twinkle in their eyes, that you’ve pleased them, they love you, you belong to them. For this alone it’s worth it”.

    In this multi-layered digital video, Itziar Barrio takes a line borrowed from popular music as the departure point for an elaborate exploration of performance, language, politics, and sexuality. Drawing its title from the chorus of British pop star Adele’s 2011 smash single, “Rolling In The Deep,” the work pays homage to the global appeal of Adele’s music while inquiring into the myth-like notion of total fulfillment.

    April 25 - June 31, 2013

    1068 Budapest, Király utca 76
    http://www.acbgaleria.hu

    The exhibition explores radical artistic expressions in contemporary art. It features artworks from the past decade and the recent past, which react to a social or political situation or phenomenon, but, offering more than mere critique, they also urge us to take a stand for or against the given issue. These artistic statements, in most cases, do not tread lightly; stretching the limits of conventional tastes and consensual norms, they shock and provoke their audience into assuming a standpoint. Their activism directly or indirectly relates to art and explores the social role of art and the artist, thus touching on the periodically resurfacing problematic of the autonomy of art.

    The Abrons Arts Center is proud to present Casting THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE: A Performance, the second stage of visual artist Itziar Barrio’s exploration in power dynamics and constructed situations. Using the methods of casting, the performance will unfold the wills and desires of the actors to succeed and be recognized. By placing them within fictional and non-fictional parameters, whether movie scripts or their own lives, Barrio reveals the production of power through seduction.

    Following an open call, actors will audition for four full days with theater director Niegel Smith and will undergo a selection process. Open to the public for only two days the entire process will be recorded and included in a resulting video piece. Exploring simultaneously the limits and in betweens of theater, film and performance art, the live recording emphasizes the experience that is being created by actors and audience.

    Our Backs Against the Wall, a panel discussion between five artists and five counterparts from various disciplines, aims to instigate a dialogue about “the wall” as support, residue, and partition in current artistic, social, and economic practices.

    The panel will be structured in the form of five conversations between paired participants: Haig Aivazian / David Markus, Nadia Ayari / Ranya Husami, Itziar Barrio / Niels Van Tomme, Mary Ellen Carroll / Greta Byrum, and Annabel Daou / Uzma Rizvi

    This event will be moderated by Allison Katz and take place in conjunction with the closing weekend of Annabel Daou’s show: you say i want a revolution

    “The  perils of obedience” is appropriated from the title of an article  published in 1974 by psychologist Stanley Milgram, summarising and  explaining a series of fascinating but appalling social psychology  experiments carried out at the University of Yale. According to Milgram,  in a country officially supposed to be a democracy, two thirds of the  population are capable of executing any order proceeding from a higher  authority. Barrio resignifies the title and assigns it to a non-existent  outcome, in order to recreate the construction process of a scene in  real time and live, for the audience attends some of the work sessions  and everything is broadcast on line through streaming. There is no  previous script, though one does emerge from the process. Nevertheless,  there are questions that function as a conceptual thread that runs  through the practice: the human need to create rules under which to  organise the entire human collective and reality itself, the binomial of  authority - obedience, the construction of collective conducts, the  process of group creation and power dynamics. These problematics are  conjugated within the different frames of reference of this evidently  experimental project.
     (…) Itziar Barrrio is interested in realities and in showing their  limitations and ambiguities as truth, through analysis of their forms of  representation. So, art, film, television, the performing arts and the  Internet take the floor as work tools and objects for experimentation  and analysis. Her interest not only lies in the story that upholds the  realities but in its recreations, its techniques for showing them or  fictionalising them.
