Charlottenborg Art Talk
Luis Berríos-Negrón: "Undisciplinary Learning and the Social Pedestal"
Luis Berríos-Negrón (Puerto Rico, 1971) is a multidisciplinary artist who works in the intersection between sculpture, installation and environmentalism.
For this occasion of Charlottenborg Art Talks, Berríos-Negrón will delve into his collective and ongoing project z.b. "Anxious Prop" that explores the expansion of the performative field, the display of dematerialisation, and the academic reflex of art to get in the business of knowledge production.
Berríos-Negrón's talk aims to open a discussion about z.b. "Anxious Prop" and the techniques, props, and preparations that allow us to sense the contemporary "environmental form" in lieu of digitalization and accelerated climate change.
Berríos-Negrón proposes this format of engagement between the artist and audience as a version of the “social pedestal” - one that may display, not necessarily knowledge or crystallized sculpture, but of personal and collective sensation as a political figure beyond our intentionality.
