Underground

Lucas Muñoz Muñoz
Installation – Calado de San Gregorio
Concentrico 05

 

In the underground is where what ends up seeing light grows. Take caves where wines are macerated, or clandestine clubs hidden underground, in any case they are spaces separated from the external realities. Urban cultures are born in this way, independent, self-existing, outside the system but inevitably included in it. Cultures in which music, activity, lexicon, image, etc are cultivated and they define themselves in their underground, underground collectivity.

The skate culture was one of them and it is still a very strong one. Born in the empty swimming pools of California in the drought of the 70s, today it includes different ways of dressing and styles of music around an activity that is medium half Malabar sport, but that is also a way of seeing and understanding the urban landscape. Ramps, curbs, floor textures, stairs, are challenges for some wheels and you have to read and understand them to be able to skate them.

A space like the San Gregorio draft reminds of those underground clubs with sweaty walls and reverberant acoustics, sunk under the pavement. But it also reminds of an inverted ramp. This installation dialogues with the space in those two terms: referring to the condition of the Draft, returns to the underground the culture of the skate. It is a combination between U-shaped skateboard ramp and speakers. A sound installation that invites the visitor to imagine a moment of what could have been witness, the birth of an urban culture.

Lucas Muñoz Muñoz

Lucas Muñoz Muñoz is a Spanish designer, craftsman and artist based in Holland and Spain. His work deals with the world of design from an expanded position: we still find objects among his works such as videos, documentaries, scanned in three dimensions or sound pieces, among other forms of exploration. However, the majority of his work are material pieces, with a background that is often conceptual and almost always determined by the context to which they belong to or where they come from materially. Thus, he works with a variety of typologies such as: skateboards, boats, sound systems and, of course, furniture.
Lucas is also a teacher at Design Academy Eindhoven, IED Madrid and UNAV, as well as a visiting professor at other universities.
