Correction of section A-36 / Operating manual The program is provided with a series of orders corresponding to the way that Aizenberg understood automatism, it is probably that the resulting text can only be understood after being translated by the developing model. For now it is imperative that the commands remain iterating at 44 frames per second, maybe after a few days the errors will move smoothly to the lower section of the device. For now it is necessary, that indicated the moment to turn on the extension of the system, the operator is separated enough so that it does not undergo any chemical alteration. According to the previous report, the operator of the morning shift has not stopped seeing the inside of the people who come to greet him, this has caused a deep discomfort in the directives that only await the repetitive production of the linear expansion model. I recommend a series of tests that certify that the model in question is able to move the highest areas of furniture from one room to another, otherwise, it is essential that they are repeated for a period of no more than 30 days, the exercises of observation and the copy of the green towers that are inside the section P.

Patrik P Independent Consultant / Planning Unit The work of Alberto Lezaca (1971, Bogota) investigates cultural and technological devices that allow the creation of reality. He is interested in language as cultural construction that determines how we understand the materiality of the world through the creation of categories and mental structures. During his career he has worked with different media including installation, painting, video, sculpture, computer graphics, multimedia and photography. His work seeks the encounter with practices beyond the visual arts; Has developed research related to architecture, design, music and literature. For the exhibition Frequency room Lezaca proposes the amplification and modulation of the habitual use of the objects. The paintings and sculptures that are part of the exhibition are presented as units that establish indeterminate connections and possible focal points that operate in a strange way.

ARRร NIZ Arte Contemporรกneo

Arróniz emerged from a particular interest to work with a new generation of artists from Mexico and Latin America. Our main drive is to support and closely follow the careers of our artists both locally and internationally. A key element to our labor are the multiple exchanges with other galleries from other countries and participation in art fairs around the world.

Our local program is composed by exhibitions of our represented, or invited artists, and a parallel presentation in the projects room where a specific piece or project –created with the space in mind– is showed. This allows us to expand our cultural offer to new audiences while working in collaboration with other artists, curators and institutions.
