In his work Ficciones del Trópico, Molero was inspired by the works of Victor Segalen and the visions of Werner Herzog in Fitzcarraldo and Aguirre, The Wrath of God to create soundscapes that portray those ideals that were documented by romantic explorers in search of ‘new worlds’, crossing the jungle of South America, exploring the unknown and evoking utopia.
Born in Maracaibo (Venezuela), Alexander Molero has lived in Barcelona for a number of years. This has led him to reflect on the West’s imaginary of the Amazon. Molero’s tropical fiction is like diving into the sea with Jürgen Müller, exploring Alpha Centauri with Tangerine Dream or creating new exotica through Mike Cooper’s lens.
Repair Manuals and Cosmic Sounds is an expanded exhibition proposal that looks to the past to find experimental and collective forms of self-publishing. Besides printed publications, the exhibition also includes sound editions. So, in the context of Let’s sound with…, we will invite various artists to create a sound activation of the show reinterpreted through their own practices.
