Iván Navarro "Resistance"

"Resistance" es una obra de videoarte que he realizado junto al artista chileno Iván Navarro para la Bienal de Arte de Venecia 2009. Forma parte de la instalación 'Threshold' que representa al país de Chile junto con las obras "Death Row" y "Bed".

'Resistance' is a sculpture that is accompanied by a video: it is a bicycle with a chairthat is constructed from fluorescent tubes that are illuminated by the activation of the bike's pedals. in the video, the same bicycle is seen riding around times square in new york, showing the sharp contrast between luminous urban furniture and the lights generated by the cyclist's muscle power.
