Respiración Fluvial - Exposición de Carlos Monleón

Venue: Homesession
Creu Dels Molers, 15

Price: Free event

Carlos Monleón, artist in residence at Homesession, presents his project “Respiración Fluvial” [River Breathing] on 18 January 2024.

River Breathing is an immersive sound installation in which to experience the various life cycles that make up the pulse of rivers.

A chorus of Naiads gives voice to different river stretches, embodying metabolic events – some characteristic, some traumatic – that shake the lives of various bodies of water.

A multi-channel immersive sound piece that makes perceptible a wealth of groundwater and surface water data from the Ebro and Segre basin, interpreted in collaboration with biologists, computer scientists and musicians.

The work was produced in the context of the Art and Technology Grant promoted by Homesession, Etopía and La Panera, with the support of Osic and EKWC.


Carlos Monleón works between different levels of bodily sensation and perception, from the (micro)biological to the performative and social. His main line of research follows evolutionary mechanisms that originate in digestion and cognition and result in the distribution of bodily processes in multi-species networks and cybernetic metabolisms. Predominantly collaborative, she has exhibited and participated in projects at Seventeen Gallery, Autoitalia in London, CA2M, Matadero Madrid, HIAP Helsinki and her solo practice at Hangar, Lisbon, the Tallinn Biennial or the Istanbul and Porto Design Biennial among others.
