WHAT CAN I DO WITH THE REST OF MY BODY RESEARCH GROUP

Grupo de investigación Qué puedo hacer con lo que resta de mi cuerpo

One can recognize in the texts by Manel Clot (Granollers, 1956-2016) a multiplicity of incipient ideas, obsessive desires, rough references, the validity of nostalgia, inopportune utopias and sudden fatigues that traverse the fleetingness of the sentence and dominate his thinking almost permanently. They are not anachronisms but rather reminiscences of the 1990s, of its darkness and sweetness; a discursive production that implemented the concept of club culture and the language of night life in relation with contemporary art practices.

One cold night the body explains that everything is balanced, except the little losses of heat registered during every exchange of information. What remains, in fact, are those drops of sweat that the body misses. The pores sweat, exude a kind of self-conscious tenderness.

What Can I Do with the Rest of My Body is a research group whose members are Víctor Aguado Machuca, Jesús Alcaide and Néstor García Díaz. The title is taken from Musée des phrases, 2003-2015 by Manel Clot.
