BIO



PATRICIO GIL FLOOD (1977 - ARGENTINA)

Since some years from now, I've been carrying a practice questioning the notions of work and leisure in arts. And I have been participating in a number of projects that confront the relation between text (writing, archive research, etc) and action (performance, publishing, etc). There are existing tensions between visibility and invisibility, questioning the work (of art) and its documentation (or existence). Now these aspects are taking a form of a research in the itinerant project ECOLE DU NON TRAVAIL (http://www.ecoledunontravail.org)

Also during the last years, I have been participating collectives experiences related to performance, collective associations, walks and discussions, institutional interpellation, experimental exchange of goods, historically migratory traits and drifts. Some examples of these are:  Practicas de Periferia, Filfilfil, MACACO Press (http://www.macacopress.ch), Los Individuos Radio, La Dispersión, AAS (Agencia de Asuntos Subtropicales), Artistas Orgnizados, Centro de Investigaciones Artisticas, and the micro society of artists Proyecto V.
