Surpik Angelini and the Transart Foundation for Art and Anthropology in Houston, Texas, are delighted to present The Cloud Chamber, a solo exhibition by Madrid-based artist Linarejos Moreno. The exhibition, produced at the Alcobendas Contemporary Art Center (Madrid), will serve as a starting point for an artist-in-residence experiment during which Linarejos, together with invited critics, will work toward the production of seminal texts that expand and contextualize her work, while developing her artistic project, How to Catch Cosmic Rays at Home. Moreno’s practice explores subjectivity as a mode of resistance to reification, focusing on the non-productive uses of industrial spaces and on scientific representation as a tool for interrogating modernity. Her research interests include the sociology of science/technology and the relationship between Capital and contemporary forms of Romanticism. In the research-based Cloud Chamber exhibit, Linarejos takes advantage of the formal and temporal (1911) convergence of two documents – the first photographs of cosmic rays and Wassily Kandinsky’s first published text – to interrogate the origin of pictorial abstraction as a break from representation. With How to Catch Cosmic Rays at Home, the artist turns to a project that will incorporate everyday, domestic objects into experiments for visualizing cosmic rays. In so doing, the project brings humor, humanity, otherness, and a gender-based perspective to the area of Art/Science production. The Transart Foundation for Art and Anthropology in Houston is a non profit, private foundation that supports experimental work at the intersection of art and anthropology. The AIA award-winning building is located in the museum district of Houston, Texas at 1412 West Alabama Street, near the Menil Collection. Visits by appointment only.
