Ana Solano, “Universos descodificados líquidos”

“Universos descodificados líquidos” was created for this exhibition . This sound video-installation comes up after having read Big bang of severo Sarduy ( Ubu editions 2007) The existence of new universes have seducen me …The idea of building a theory of multiple universes that could be created and decoded; to be able to wanderin underground places, fantasize about the possibility of creating fragmented pieces of universes (matter becomes liquid in metaphorical sense); the pieces open a space and connections that rush towards universes contaminated by a process of approaching to social situation, where matter can be deformed, create landslides …Construct inside space-time intuitive models that rush towards explosions of luminous fragments that become liquid in the journey of the pieces, stories woven between music and video, a mixture of layersthat accumulate those pieces of universes that vibrate and intermingle with empty spaces,
deposits of elements and music that interact with each other in every piece of this sound video-installation …”Universos descodificados líquidos” evolves towards a “dystopia” of social reality …

Jordi Cerdà, del minimalismo al arte conceptual

The exhibition Jordi Cerdà, from minimalism to conceptual art, shows us the production that the artist made between the late 1960s and the late 1980s. It is the first time that his artistic work of this period has been extensively reviewed. Very interesting in his extensive work, but at the same time is very little known at present, was exposed and reproduced in different publications, but has been revisited on rare occasions. The exhibition is composed of paintings, drawings, photographs, photocopies, films and videos by Jordi Cerdà and shows us his evolution, the step he took from pictorial abstraction to conceptual art, in which he used other media such as photography, cinema or the video to make a work more related to the use of verbal language.

Francesca Llopis, Vanessa & Pierre Bastien, Insektament errants

Insektament errants is an artistic device articulated through video art, painting and photography. A collaboration between Francesca Llopis and Vanessa Pey with an entomological and sonorous interpretation by Pierre Bastien.
Francesa Llopis’ pictorial action Nosaltres & l’estat de les coses 2018 (Us & the state of things 2018) addresses the confrontation and the dysfunction in today’s world as well as the inner fury/rage. Inked fingerprints and pressed hands that tear the paper, taking us into a hole, a vanishing point, and a cry. Whithin the paintings Vanessa Pey unlocks an invisible, subterranean world. Her gaze captures a parallel dimension where new elements, forms, beings and landscapes arise, bringing us back to Insekta’s idea, this reclaiming being who sheds fresh light on the current state of things.
