Dublett [Publication]

"...I present you my dead son.
The audience gasps as the sheet is removed.
A creature, dissected and dismembered. His parts carefully sliced."

The Pedro Gómez-Egaña Dublett includes two books: one is an anthology with texts by Elie During, Octavio Zaya, Jacob Wren, and Knut Ove Arntzen, an interview with Bojana Bauer, and an overview of recent works. The second is the artist book Mitre Marrows that includes a series of stories and drawings amounting to a fiction on automata, desire and family. Published by Hordaland Art Centre. 

The Mitre Marrows project includes a performance in a lecture format that talks about how two automata possess the artist to write a story about desire, reincarnation and five iconic architectural sites.

Dermed er kunstnerskapet – som de siste ti årene har utviklet seg i dialog med kunstscenen i Bergen – ettertrykkelig plassert innenfor den globaliserte samtidskunstens felt av akselerert migrasjon og kommunikasjon."...
