Victor López Zumelzu y Natalia Sosa Molina
(Chile, 1982 y Argentina, 1983)
CURATORIAL RESEARCH RESIDENCES
Victor López Zumelzu and Natalia Sosa Molina develop a writing and performative project called FUTURO? where through different drifts in the Latin American territory they make critical reflections on identity, colonial nature, landscape, exploitation and extractivism and mainly "time". Time, in its circular, porous and kinesic form as the original peoples of South America thought generate strata and layers of non-linear subjectivity that interrogate the body and exploited terrestrial ecosystems by establishing analogies between them. This is a research in continuous process between book, brochure, fanzine and unfinished dialogues where concepts such as future and present are intertwined and expose in different montages subtle relationships between objects, affects and indeterminate historical positions.
Victor López Zumelzu (Chile, 1982) is a chilean poet, critic and curator. He has been part of the Artists program and Critics of the UTDT, as well as part of the team of Fundación Proa (Argentina) and Metales Pesados (Chile). He has been co-director and curator of the Bigsur art gallery (Buenos Aires) during 2017 to 2018. He constantly writes essays in contemporary art magazines like Artishock and Rotunda Magazine. Among his latest curatorial projects is "Yeguas del apocalipsis", Fundación Proa (2019-2020). As a writer he has published more than 8 books. In curatorial terms, his work has crossed the relationships between Latin American literature and visual arts, especially performance.
Natalia Sosa Molina (Argentina, 1983) is an independent artist and cultural manager. She has a Degree in Textile Art from the University of Buenos Aires and Photography from the same university. She has been director of the Chien Noir gallery (Buenos Aires) from 2016 to 2019. She is a collaborator in the contemporary art magazine G.A.D (Japan). Her artistic work has traveled through the intersection of information technologies and Latin American ancestral cultures, exploring the visual and conceptual relationships between the popular rites of America, politicizing them from a place of rethinking identity and the body in a poetic function, thereby generating projects that account for a genealogy focused on the processes where new images, subjectivities and sexual and historical narratives emerge.
