‘Atlantic spirits selling their royal oats for fresh lamb to B/W sheep.
I see them calling for more life, baffled by the idea of agua being all our friend.’
For the artist´s first solo presentation in Spain FLY HIGH, Cõvco presents a new site-specific
immersive installation. The exhibition continues a material and conceptual investigation initiated with
a performance called Nexus in Paradise: A season of L´s originally developed for Thunder and Light,
a public program about faith and God curated by Cordova’s director Cory John Scozzari that took
place in March of 2022 at La Casa Encendida. In the Barcelona chapter the audience is drawn into an
immersive world of large-scale fabric pieces and paintings, whose figurative and expressive passages
simultaneously invoke sensations of panic and tribulation as well as divinity and ecstasy. Viewers are
taken on a pilgrimage with Cõvco where she asks some difficult questions about belief, the sublime
and the passage from life into death. In this version there is a special tribute paid to the oceanic
journey of migrants who come to Europe from Africa and how through this voyage they are converted
into angels; both those who arrive and those who remain at sea.
