PEDRO NEVES MARQUES
The Pudic Relation Between Machine and Plant, 2016
On view in the museum lobby, The Pudic Relation Between Machine and Plant, 2016, a piece by the New York based Portuguese artist Pedro Neves Marques (Lisbon, 1984), consists of a video made with the King’s College Centre for Robotics Research in which a sensitive plant, a Mimosa Pudica, reacts in contact with a robotic arm, closing every time the cyborg limb touches it.
CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo exhibits capsules of its collection, placed in transitory spaces throughout the museum, displaying works on a quasi-permanent basis.
The piece by Pedro Neves Marques is on exhibit coinciding with the ARCOmadrid 2018 art fair, whose theme this year is The Future.
