LABoral Centro de Arte shows ‘Nowhere/Now/Here’, an exhibition curated by the creative partnership Roberto Feo and Rosario Hurtado (El Último Grito) that challenges the perception of design by questioning our relationship with the environment.

‘Nowhere/Now/Here’ features more than 60 works ranging from everyday products, fashion, jewellery to installations and live performances by established designers such as Tord Boontje, Jerszy Seymour, Santiago Cirugeda, Dunne & Raby, together with emerging practitioners including Martino Gamper, Paul Cocksedge, Assa Ashuach and Troika among others. A crucial aspect of ‘Nowhere/Now/Here’ is the contribution of four masters: Ron Arad, Gaetano Pesce, Javier Mariscal and Daniel Weil who contextualise the work of the younger generation through a series of interviews and some of their works.
The exhibition features Troika's ‘Electroprobe Installation #3, Gijón Magnetica’, the third in their series of ‘Electroprobe Installations’, a chaotic assemblage of electric/electronic objects sourced from the Gijón area: electric appliances, mobile phones chargers, clocks, LEDs, transformers and a custom made ‘Gijón’ neon sign.
