Tue, Nov 15 2011 2011, Atlántica, Barcelona, collaboration, Erick Beltrán, Galeria Joan Prats, interview, Jorge Satorre, magazine
Opening: 17 November 2011, 19.30h (the artist will do a talk at 20h)
Exhibition organised by: Jorge Satorre and Erick Beltrán
With works by: Christoph Keller, Raphaël Zarka, Paloma Polo, Bernardo Ortiz,
Efrén Álvarez, Meris Angioletti, Jose Antonio Vega Macotela, Vilayanur Ramachandran,
Jorge Aviña and Florian Göttke.
The presentation at Galeria Joan Prats is the third iteration of the project which began in September 2010 at FormContent, London and continued in March 2011 at Casa Vecina, México DF.
"Modelling Standard takes as a point of departure the radical historiographic turn introduced by Carlo Ginzburg in the 1970s who focused on localised, popular and disregarded micro-histories rather than universal, over-arching versions. The title Modelling Standard references the scientific concept of the Standard Model used in physics to explain the almost invisible interactions occurring between subatomic particles.
Erick Beltrán and Jorge Satorre use both micro-historical methods and the metaphor borrowed from physics to create connections between small, insignificant hints and traces. These are taken from their heterogeneous references to build seemingly unlikely connections between literary references, personal experiences, historical data, trivia and scientific facts through the construction of a diagram. The result is a series of caricatures and texts through which the artists will construct a detective plot where Sigmund Freud, Carlo Ginzburg, Giovanni Morelli, Aby Warburg, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Joe Orton are the protagonists." (taken from FormContent's press release) In Casa Vecina, Modelling Standard expanded with the inclusion of a comic also with drawings by illustrator and project collaborator Jorge Aviña, which will also be presented in Galeria Joan Prats alongside, as the artists have stated, the "input from a number of artists, illustrators and guest researchers, whose personal research work adds new links to the chain that stretches and lengthens ... like the devil's drool".
Installation process of the exhibition. Photo taken the day we began the interview for 'Atlántica' magazine. In relation to 'Modelling Standard' Latitudes is currently working on an interview with Satorre and Beltrán for the Spanish magazine 'Atlántica' (to be published in February 2012), where there will be an opportunity to read more about their thread of ideas for this project as well as the process of their collaborative work – the latter being one of the focus of Latitudes' interests developed in exhibition projects such as 'Amikejo' (four exhibitions at MUSAC, León, 2011) or 'The Garden of Forking Paths' (Maisterravalbuena, Madrid, 2009).

Information about NoguerasBlanchard
NoguerasBlanchard opened in June 2004 and is located next to Las Ramblas in the historic, multi-ethnic, Raval neighbourhood, in Barcelona. In this context we are strongly committed to developing an exhibition programme with emerging international artists whose work shows strong conceptual concerns and participates in the dialogue between art and broader currents in contemporary society.
The gallery's main goal is to engage in a long-term commitment with the careers of its artists and to be highly involved in the production of works. We are assisting with proposals, raising funds to produce films, biennial projects or catalogues while working in close alliance with international galleries and institutions, generating from co-productions to traveling exhibitions.
NoguerasBlanchard's participation in international fairs is essential for the promotion of our artists world-wide, while enabling us locally to maintain a lively and stimulating environment for art production and exchange.
