Kryptonite

Itziar Barrio. Kryptonite, 2011.

Description:
Kryptonite is a multimedia installation project which investigates relations of power dynamics and desire through text, sculpture and video. Visual artist Itziar Barrio, and author Chavisa Woods, have collaborated to create a piece in which literary and visual media work in a symbiosis, generating a common iconography shared in the poetic text and visual exhibition. Kryptonite includes a video installation by Itziar Barrio, at the Cervantes Institute, and extends beyond the gallery venue and into the public sphere. A series of posters featuring three excerpts from the poem, Kryptonite, by Chavisa Woods, are on display at public venues around Manhattan throughout the month of March.

Kryptonite uses a non-linear narrative to create a new mythology showcasing power structures, poverty and sexual desire as the main characters.
