Pabellón para Artes en el Cielo

 


Pabellón en Albert Dock, David Adjaye y Doug Aitken

Como parte de la serie Sky Arts, el arquitecto Britanico David Adjaye  y el artista Norteamericano Doug Aitken han diseñado un pabellón que será instalado en el sitio histórico Albert Dock, fuera de la Tate Liverpool. El pabellón de forma circular albergará las principales figuras del evento, que reúne artistas de todas las edades y procedencia. Sky Arts se puso en marcha en 2011 para promover el talento emergente apoyando la creación de nuevas obras de arte.

El Pabellón será una estructura temporal de 14,2 metros de diámetro y un techo inclinado que parte de una altura de 2,80 metros hasta los 4,80 metros de su punto más alto. Estará construido sobre un bastidor de madera y revestido por una combinación de acrílico corrugado y paneles de betún. El pabellón tendrá actividades durante el día y en la noche sobre sus paredes exteriores se proyectaran imágenes de las obras de Aitken, un innovador en proyectos audiovisuales al aire libre. El pabellón se abrirá al público a partir del 15 septiembre hasta el 13 de enero de 2013.

“Este proyecto es acerca de las raíces de la creatividad. Muchas de las personas que componen el proyecto están trabajando en medios muy diversos, y es que el hilo conductor que me interesa  tiene mucho que ver la autonomía del espectador. Quiero que la instalación en la Tate Liverpool sea un lugar al que uno puede ir y entrar en el campo de las ideas. Será una celebración del poder del individuo y la construcción de un nuevo territorio creativo sin fronteras”.  Doug Aitken

American artist Doug Aitken and British architect David Adjaye have collaborated for the first time to design a pavilion that will be installed outside Tate Liverpool on the city’s historic Albert Dock as part of the Sky Arts Ignition Series, which will go on show from 15 September 2012 – 13 January 2013. Sky Arts Ignition: Doug Aitken – The Source will be part of the seventh Liverpool Biennial.

Sky Arts Ignition: Doug Aitken – The Source is the artist’s first public realm installation in the UK and features filmed conversations with some of the world’s leading creative figures. Participants of all ages and backgrounds, working across different art forms, respond to two questions: where does the creative idea start and how is it realised? Those interviewed include David Adjaye, Devendra Banhart, Thomas Demand, Liz Diller, William Eggleston, Jacques Herzog, Mike Kelley, Lucky Dragons, James Murphy, Philippe Parreno, Richard Phillips, Jack Pierson, Stephen Shore, Paolo Soleri, Tilda Swinton, Ryan Trecartin and Jack White.

The Pavilion will be located in Mermaid Court, adjacent to the largest single grouping of Grade 1 listed buildings anywhere in England. At 14.2 metres in diameter, with a sloping roof that ranges from 2.8m to 4.8m in height, the pavilion will provide an immersive experience during the day, with a night-time presence created through the projection of Aitken’s work on the outer walls of the circular structure. Built from a wooden frame and a combination of corrugated acrylic and bitumen panels, the pavilion will be a temporary structure that deliberately separates Aitken’s work from the traditional gallery space in order to create a new cultural destination.

The Sky Arts Ignition Series was launched in 2011 to support the creation of major new works of art as well as nurture emerging talent. Sky Arts Ignition: Doug Aitken – The Source is the first project in the series, which will see Sky Arts collaborate with six leading arts organisations from across the UK and Ireland in the creation of brand new works. For each of the chosen projects, Sky Arts will provide a cash investment of up to £200,000 and work with the arts partners to bring their projects to a wider audience, using Sky’s platform.

James Hunt, Director of Sky Arts, commented, “At Sky Arts, it’s clear to us just how fascinated people are by the creative process that goes into making works of art. Doug’s plan for the first Sky Arts Ignition project really captures that; opening up the creative process and making it more relatable and accessible. That’s another thing that we try to do at Sky Arts, and Doug’s project fits with that ethos perfectly.”
