Mixed media, happening and Performance.

The second version of Timid Project was staged on the occasion of La Otra Bogotá Biennal (2013) in a marketplace at La Perseverancia suburb.

This project is made up of a video installation presenting the performances developed during the alternative art fair of Bogota, La Otra, in 2011. This was curated and materialized in collaboration with Colombian artist and writer Manuel Kalmanovitz. It hosted 10 performances registered in video and an installation announcing the current project.

Adopting the thematic standpoints of La Otra Bogotá Biennal 2014, the Timid Project worked with the private sphere within a public surrounding. Artists were asked to perform their musical projects as they do in their studios, homes, bedrooms, etc. The performances were held each Saturday throughout the Biennal at the marketplace.

The artists invited were: José Aramburo and Elkin Calderón, Montón Volador, Mariana Jurado, Andrés Felipe Uribe, Los Jamás, Las Malas Amistades, Adriana García Galán, Mugre, Francisco Mojica, Corales Silentes.

2011

Curaduría, happening e instalación / Curatorial project, happening and Installation.

Proyecto tímido fue creado para no-músicos artistas que hacen música, pero sufren de pánico escénico. Se presentó en la Feria de Arte Contemporáneo, La Otra, en el año 2011. Este proyecto se hizo en colaboración con el artista Manuel Kalmanovitz.

El proyecto consistía en una video instalación que presentaba 25 videos de artistas que usan música y performance registrado en video. Durante dos días el Proyecto Tímido se convirtió en un happening en el que artistas fueron invitados a cantar y performar en un cubo cerrado y aislado al cual solo los participantes tenían acceso. Al interior del espacio había cámaras grabando los performances y proyectando simultáneamente hacia el exterior  por medio de monitores y parlantes lo que ocurría al dentro del espacio.

Timid Project was created for timid not-musician artists who make music but suffer from stage fright. This was staged on the occasion of the alternative art fair of Bogotá called La Otra (The Other).

This project is made up of a video installation curated by Colombian artist Manuel Kalmanovitz and myself. It held 25 videos of artists doing music and performance to video.

During two days of the exhibit, Timid Project became a happening where artists were invited to sing and perform in an enclosed cube. We had cameras recording what was happening inside and video monitors and speakers broadcasting outside.
