“That Pink Thing” Langarita & Navarro and Jerónimo Hagerman installation at IVAM

The objective of “That Pink Thing” is to materialize a space that responds to contemporary concerns around the energetic, the ecosystemic, the political, the public or the sensible. Through large-scale textile and vegetable elements, the intervention will provide shade to the main façade of the museum, which, oriented to the west, receives a strong insolation in summer. It will try to change the perception of this space to turn it into an outside room to carry out activities.

THAT PINK THING is a temporary intervention made on the IVAM’s façade by the artist Jerónimo Hagerman (Mexico City, 1967) and the architects María Langarita (Calatorao, 1979) and Víctor Navarro (Madrid, 1979). Their intention is to reveal an IVAM parallel to the one that was designed on the basis of the modern logic of what is hard and solid, and to materialise a space that provides a response to contemporary concerns about energy, the ecosystem, politics, the public sphere and sensibility.
