Catalina Barroso-Luque & Feronia Wennborg – “R-22.2”
Due to unforeseen circumstance this event has had to be cancelled.
“R-22.2” is a performance collaboratively produced by Catalina Barroso-Luque and Feronia Wennborg. The story follows Refrigerant Gas 22 as they make their way through the distinct environments in a fridge cooling system. R-22 is one and many, embodying both dark and jovial aspects of individual and collective existence. The basis for this domestic sci-fi tale was produced in quarantine using home recordings, noises, voices, and interactions with everyday objects. Originally commissioned as a sound piece for Wysing Broadcast, the story takes new multidimensional form as a performance for Radiophrenia.
Choreography by Salma Françoise Faraji.
Catalina Barroso-Luque is a Mexican artist who constructs narratives, makes images and hosts intimate events. Writing is at the heart of her practice and relies on techniques of performativity and vocality, alongside processes of disassembly, reassembly, and translation. Catalina works with other practitioners. Making is carried across bodies and territories, resulting in artworks that are voiced between tongues. In 2021 Catalina launched She’s a bit much (abitmuch.net) in collaboration with Jude Browning, an online publishing platform that is sensitive, sick and cloyingly sweet. Catalina has also been working with Daniella Valz Gen on Deslices, a correspondence series for Glasgow International 2021, Montez Press Radio (New York 2021) and Desbordes / Deshacer in post[s] (Quito 2022). Other new work include: Berta Esmeralda, a short story about a macaw, Gutter Magazine Vol. 24 (Glasgow 2021;) and Xaxalpa, a Mexican gothic memoir for Bricks from the Kiln V (London 2022).
Feronia Wennborg is an artist, musician and arts programmer based in Glasgow, working interdisciplinary with a focus on sound. Her work collects traces of intimacy and friendship through processes of recording, transcription and digital transformation. She often works in close collaboration with others and is part of the music duo soft tissue together with Simon Weins. In 2019-2021 she was a programme committee member at the artist-run space Market Gallery. Her work has been presented and commissioned by institutions, festivals and artist-run initiatives in the UK and internationally, including: Wysing Arts Centre, West den Haag, ArtVerona, CCA Glasgow, The Pipe Factory, Counterflows & Radiophrenia.
