THE PIPE FACTORY is pleased to host Catalina Barroso-Luque new solo exhibition: eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Nine months into her residency at the Glasgow Sculpture Studio, Catalina will present a narrative sound installation at The Pipe Factory. The presented work will focus on how body, mind and technology become entangled within inter/intra-personal relationships.

The piece is inspired by research and interviews held between the artist and her brother regarding his use of GECI viruses to map neural networks, the artist’s own experience of working within a hermetic studio, and the possibility of slipping into the voices in one’s head.

Framed within The Pipe Factory’s characteristic state of frozen disrepair, the work plays with the permeable boundaries of physical and psychic architecture exploring the desire to become-with an other, the machine, and space. Within this, narrative is used to navigate inter-subjective experiences through the construction of spaces of imaginary projection and fantasy.

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee is kindly supported by the Glasgow Sculpture Studios Graduate Fellowship Programme, Platform and the Glasgow Visual Artist & Craft Maker Award Scheme.

Catalina would also like to thank Victoria Chen Wei, Isobel Lutz-Smith, Paul Aitcheson and Mark MacQueen for their help.
