Everything created by the human is degradable.
The object that we creating has a function in our everyday life.
Bee able to eat on a table,
use the spoon, walls having hooks to hang up our jackets.
In this exhibition the materials are breaking free from there everyday function,
the exploration of movement patterns.
Casandra is just the choreograph helping the materials to get to those expressions.
“I want to break free” // Freddie Mercury
Casandra Cornelio (°1986, Born Mexico City,) makes sculptures, performances and mixed media artworks.
Cornelio focuses on the idea of ‘public space’ and more specifically on spaces where anyone can do anything at any given moment:
the non-private space, the non-privately owned space, space that is economically uninteresting.
In 2012 Casandra was in a traffic accident by bicycle that changed her ability to move in the way that she used to.
This forced her to find a new way of expressing herself, finding out to use larger movements,
discovering graffiti and how dance could be conveyed as visual art.
In 2019 she got hEDS diagnosed and that explain why the pain never ended after the accident,
and how to be able to handle living with chronically pain.
Turning the pain into visulasing the healing processing, mentally and physically.
Her sculptures isolate the movements of humans and/or objects.
By doing so, new sequences are created which reveal an inseparable relationship between motion and sound.
In a search for new methods to ‘read the city’, she often creates work using the mantra “relaxing is not a crime”.
By questioning the concept of movement, she finds that movement reveals an inherent awkwardness, a humor that echoes our own vulnerabilities. The artist also considers movement as a metaphor for the ever-seeking man who experiences a continuous loss.
Her works are often about contact with architecture and basic living elements. Energy (heat, light, water), space and landscape are examined in less obvious ways and sometimes developed in absurd ways. Process, motion, and changes are the three keystones in her work. Casandra Cornelio currently lives and works in Malmö.
