Mercedes Azpilicueta @ Gasworks

19 May 2021 - 4 July 2021

Mercedes Azpilicueta calls herself a ‘dishonest researcher’, who creates work in conversation with archives and libraries, myths and legends. In pursuit of elusive historical figures, she uncovers queer, migrant and unheard voices from South America’s colonial past.

Created in close collaboration with historians, dancers and craftspeople, her installations take the form of dramaturgy involving set designs, theatrical props, costumes and scores for a performance that doesn’t yet exist, and where the viewer is invited to take centre stage.

The exhibition, Bondage of Passions, offers a speculative vision of Catalina de Erauso, the so-called Lieutenant Nun.
