Pascual Sisto is a Spanish artist (born in 1975) who lives and works in Los Angeles for over ten years. Pascual Sisto's body of work is an attempt to visualize liminality through repetition, manipulation and interruption. These disruptions are seen as the liminal states in otherwise constant modes of presence. The work focuses on the transitional and uncertain phase of several objects undergoing a rite of passage in which their normal condition and function is altered, leaving them in a suspended "betwixt and between" state. The sense of purpose and identity dissolves, bringing about disorientation.
For the exhibition at KIBELA, Pascual presents "28 Years in the Implicate Order" (2004). 28 red balls bounce up and down in a chaotic random order until the point where they all bounce at the same precise moment and then resume to go back into chaos.
