Join Project Space and SINELISMO (Matias Armendaris, Jacobo Zambrano and Soledad Muñoz) will host a presentation and dialogue about their new compendium of written works. The evening will also include a performance by Aileen Bryant.
In order to protect themselves from their predators, certain species imitate the appearance of wide open, threatening eyes on the surface of their bodies. To appear lifelike, sometimes even the pupil´s reflective qualities are reproduced. The prey thus turns the weapon of sight against its predator, the hunted makes itself off-putting. This makes one wonder whether skin could actually transform itself into a real eye. As Roger Caillois warns us, “If you play the ghost too often, you’ll turn into one.”
