Black Matter (stage 2): Route

As part of the Black Matter project curated by Chilean-born Tasmanian- based artist and curator Francisca Moenne in collaboration with Robert O’Connor, Cristian Rodriguez will be undergoing the Kings Bridge residency from Wed 28th of March till Friday 6th of April.

The Black Matter exhibition REFUGIA will be opening at Sawtooth on Friday 6th of April. Black Matter (space) is an ongoing research and residency-based project for Australian and Chilean artists that revisits the hypothesis of the ancient landmass Gondwana by retracing what connects place and identity and by extension, current cultural and environmental matters. The project encourages a cross-cultural exchange based on reciprocity, through a succession of co-funded art residencies, exhibitions and upcoming publications that allow translation from a deep and common geographic memory.

Rodríguez’s work is highly influenced by installation practices and by theatre. He is thecreator of an interdisciplinary project called “Laboratorio Escénico” (Scenic Lab), in which he investigates the endurance of materials through a multidisciplinary approach that explores the visual possibilities offered by the language of theatre.
