19,6”- Punto de Escucha, 2019.  Marina Salvo hesitated for 19.6 seconds the first time she called the crisis line. Taking that fact as the starting point and symbol of waiting and of the respectful act of silence, 19,6”  Punto de escucha is proposed as a space to articulate something that is not publicly expressed. In connection with the media invisibility of suicide and the associated taboo, several individuals that have somehow faced this experience are invited to tell their own stories.

19,6” – Punto de Escucha –

September 28th 2019, Tangent Projects studios.

Marina Salvo hesitated for 19.6 seconds the first time she called the crisis line. Taking that fact as the starting point and symbol of waiting, and of the respectful act of silence, 19,6” – Punto de Escucha is proposed as a space to articulate something that is not publicly expressed.

This work was first performed in June this year at La Virreina Centre de la Imatge (Barcelona) as part of Marina’s 9 month residency at Bar Project. Tangent Projects was pleased to be able to work with Marina on this second edition of 19,6” – Punto de Escucha.

This action includes «Una mirada al suicidio cara a cara (Face to Face with Suicide)», a presentation by the psychologist Isabel Vallés.

AboutAbout

statement + resume

My projects show a search for the raise of awareness of aspects that as far as I am concerned are problematic in our society. My work is connected to social environment, both political and anthropological.

I am interested in how we experience, think about and represent countries, and how people perceive and describe the spaces in which they live. My practice encompasses painting, drawing, photography,installation, site- specific and filmmaking.

My aim is that my projects grow in a collective way and I look for collaborations together with specialized people in the studied topic. My last reflexions that I show are focused on the different vital states that are created when we keep moving. Travelling from one geographic place to another and leaving our known environment and how nowadays hegemony plays everywhere.

I believe that, by providing alternative perspectives about life, art can be an agent of change. Those new perspectives, rather than the transmission of just one message, are what I look for with my work. Whether it’s my body or my objects, what I put out there among people always intends to be and subject of particular significance to every person that experiences it. The use of social convention and interpersonal codes is a very delicate task; they can touch us deeply and in many different ways. That’s where my strong commitment to the study of these matters comes from.
