NO MAN'S LAND - IVAN NAVARRO
HR-04 / CD/ 2008 COMPILATION
This record contains three tracks associated to the sculpture/installation works by Ivan Navarro.
1. "No Soy De Aqu?, Ni Soy De All?" is written by Facundo Cabral in 1970 and interpreted by Nutria NN. The recording is the soundtrack for the project, Flashlight: I'm Not From Here, I'm Not From There (2006). The project features a wheelbarrow made of fluorescent light tubes along side a video narrating a protagonist dwelling through a barren industrial landscape.
2. "Juan Sin Tierra", is written by Jorge Saldana in 1910, and interpreted by Nutria NN. The recording is made for the project Homeless Lamp, The Juice Sucker (2004) in which a video shows the wanderings of two men pushing a shopping cart made of fluorescent light tubes through Chelsea (New York City), tapping into municipal energy sources to lit the sculpture.
3. "Nowhere Man", is written by Lennon/McCartney in 1966, and interpreted by Courtney Smith & Nutria NN. In the project Die Again (Monument for Tony Smith), 2006, a 12 ft. black plywood cube contains light boxes suggesting an endless space while an acoustic version of the Beatles' song reflects on the transient experience of the expatriate and the dark limbo of the disappeared.
