Alex Villar’s long-term investigation of potential spaces of dissent in the city focuses on the productive conjunction of the body and the architectural environment. His are micro-political interventions in the social experiences that constitute our subjectivity. Villar makes use of performative displacements of regular daily activities to engage resistance in the rearticulation of the normative processes at work in everyday life. In this exhibition, three of Villar’s video pieces Other Ways, Upward Mobility and Dribbling the Field are presented in constructed settings conceived as tangible contextualizations of the situations depicted in his work.
