S t i m o l o
2017 / 2018
S t i m o l o is a sound piece by Mercedes Azpilicueta produced as part of her research for a new commission by Móvil, Buenos Aires, which she will present in 2018. This commission, which celebrates Móvil’s first 10 exhibitions, will explore art as an intimate, emotional and intellectual process; not as a visible, identifiable work, but as thought and reflection. Following her interest in literary collage, the sound piece created to launch her investigation is a poem inspired in the work of Italian art critic and feminist activist Carla Lonzi (1932-1982), and built up of words taken from the interviews she conducted with a large number of artists, transformed into a hypnotic whisper which loops around ideas of artistic motif and inspiration.
