ELENA ALONSO | ELENA TENA
Looking after something can be an incredibly intense experience or it can be a pleasing string of little gestures and decisions, but in either case, it involves a relationship with the passing of time that takes place on the margins of the system. We are further away from contemplation when the thing we have to look after does not have the shine of splendour or if it belongs to a shadow world.
Do we know how to care? Do we know what to expect? Does this time and place exist in a museum?
In this joint session with Elena Alonso and Elena Tena, we will discover the story of how Alonso developed the project to install Al cuidado de las pequeñas sombras at CA2M, a sculpture cum bat shelter affected by these and many other questions. Together with the expect voice of the biologist Elena Tena, dedicated to the conservation of bats and a collaborator in this project, we will explore the unknown world of these animals and their need for shelter.
