YOU ARE THE MAGNET AND I AM THE METAL (SLOWLY MAGNITIZDAT)
“You, you are the magnet and I am the metal
I am getting closer and making a plan
Simply thinking about it makes my heart race (oh yeah)”
– Despacito, Luis Fonsi
you are the magnet and I am the metal (slowly magnitizdat) looks at forms of repetition as a method of learning and disseminating information, and the hurdles that this crosses in terms of history and decay of knowledge.
Camila Galaz lives and works in Melbourne, where she completed Honours in Fine Art at RMIT. In her drawing and video-based practice, she uses repetition and reperformance to explore memory, place and the construction of identity, and how this relates to specific social groups.
