More than 8.200 children and youngsters from underprivileged communities have so far participated in its training programme. Colombia has suffered from a non-declared civil war for more than 50 years, fortunately recently peace talks have started. ‘El Colegio del Cuerpo’ has since its inception focussed on the construction of peace by creating artistic education opportunities for everybody with talent, no matter the ethnic background or origin.

Flash Light Stills

Exhibition Opening Friday 12th July 2013, 7.00 pm
Venue: Goethe-Institut Auditorium

Exhibition Dates: July 15–26, 2013 [Monday-Friday]
Venue: Goethe-Institut Auditorium
Entry: Free

The well-known Chilenian artist Iván Navarro and his wife, the French born artist Courtney Smith exhibit for the first time in Nairobi.

Though both artists work primarily in sculpture they also use video as a way of tracing the trajectories that are implied in the objects that they create. Uirapuru presents a series of short videos on a continuous loop that represent their collaborative work.

For the exhibition Uirapuru Iván Navarro and Courtney Smith will be presenting a series of short videos on a continuous loop. Both artists work primarily in sculpture but also use video as a way of tracing the trajectories that are implied in the objects that they create. Though the two artists work mainly independently, they periodically come together. Their collaborations are ongoing, ranging from pointed interventions in each other’s work to explicit hybrids, with their two languages intertwined and their two bodies of work physically imposed on one another.
For Uirapuru they will present five short videos that refer to the trajectories and circuits of anonymous characters moving through urban space.

Courtney Smith is known for her furniture-based sculpture and her investigation into the physical and psychological construction of interior spaces through the deconstruction of the elements that inhabit them.

Iván Navarro is widely recognized for his innovative work addressing the complex implications of transformation and transference of electrical energy through his ingeniously crafted luminous sculpture. Both artists are based in Brooklyn.
