Documenting an aerial perspective, Oscar Murillo's series of flight drawings—produced by the artist on long-haul flights—reflect the particular compression of time and space that one experiences while being in the air. They epitomise a fluid movement of place, driven by his desire to engage with concepts such as migration and displacement. Within the framework of Masses, these dense works on paper will be activated through his new live work Echoing Spirits. Using repetitions of powerful words and phrases, this performance carried out by a group of local performers creates the impression of rhythm and cadence. Linguistic overlays build up over several hours, creating a chorus that is both harmonious and dissonant – a reading as a lyrical crescendo.
