CÀNEM GALLERY (Castellón). Solas [Alone]. Elisa Torreira. Until April 23rd
In this exhibition, Elisa Torreira presents an installation and a series of manipulated photographs in which she addresses the normative codes in the construction of gender. To do so, she resorts to the forms of representation of first communion, in which the girl becomes a groped stereotype through which the limits of the woman’s identity are strengthened.
CUATRO GALLERY. Bye bye souvenir. Alejandra de la Torre. 4.03—22.4
In Bye bye souvenir, Alejandra de la Torre creates an imaginary of journeys where all kinds of memories come together. In her painting, without apparent order or accord, objects and images dispute the leading role of a changing and ephemeral identity, which is none other than the consumption of a place and a culture that no longer exist except in artifice, in a misleading memory of what we represent.
ESPAI NIVI COLLBLANC (Culla, Castellón). El poder del centinela [The power of the sentinel]. Mónica Jover. Until April 30th
In the exhibition The power of the sentinel, Mónica Jover uses the window painting to transcend the conventions of the two-dimensionality of the painting, generating landscapes that extend beyond the strict framework of a picture. To do so, the artist resorts to processes considered minor arts and relegated to the feminine condition, such as sewing and weaving.
GABINETE DE DIBUJOS. Alien hunter. Roberto Mollá. Until May 6th
Roberto Mollá places us in one of the paradigmatic cities of modernity, Tokyo. Making use of drawing, the artist presents the cartography of a city that we recognize even never having been there. From archives on the wall, various stimuli from cinema, literature, comics and music are projected onto tables and other walls that have shaped the heritage of a future that is always past.
LUIS ADELANTADO GALLERY. Unearth Tomorrow. Ting-Ting Cheng. 24.03—6.05
In the exhibition Unearth Tomorrow, Ting-Ting Cheng presents a series of photographs that lead the viewer to reconstruct a territory that could have been between Taiwan and San Salvador in Tuman. An imagination in which the viewer, turned into an explorer, is summoned to build bridges between cultures and historical moments, as a way of identifying an ever-changing present.
LUIS ADELANTADO GALLERY. Elige todo [Choose everything]. Carlos Fernández-Pello. From March 24rd to May 6th
The artist Carlos Fernández-Pello resorts to recycling as a method through which to question the consumption of a novelty that is based on the constant reappropriation of facts, theories, places and creations, which do not cease to be because they have been and continue to be in the drift of the present. From a healthy ecological attitude, classic genres such as landscape or still life present painting as an unfinished process, that of the avant-garde itself.
ROSA SANTOS GALLERY. Carta de Quebrados [Broken Colour Chart]. Chema López. From March 23rd to May 20th
In Broken Colour Chart, the artist Chema López questions contemporary identity as a construct subject to permanent revision. Desde sus pinturas, el artista aborda los parámetros que normalizan la pertenencia a un lugar o a un colectivo, sin otras consideraciones que las del registro de una imagen-dato como una fuente excluyente de cualquier otra consideración.
SET ESPAI D’ART. The structures that hold all this up. Fernando Abellanas (Lebrel) and Sean Mackaoui. Until March 26th
In the exhibition The structures that hold all this up, Fernando Abellanas (Lebrel) and Sean Mackaoui propose other ways of seeing and understanding our environment from different places of creation. While Sean Mackaoui presents a series of collages and objects that dissect the norms of seeing, Fernando Abellanas’s photographs, videos and sculpture delve into the interior of what is not seen. In both artists, humor becomes a strategy through which the everyday becomes a source of disconcerting discoveries.
SET ESPAI D’ART. Animal lamina. Isidro Ferrer. From April 1st to June 6th
As a cabinet of curiosities, the designer Isidro Ferrer proposes in this exhibition a large mural created with all kinds of techniques (assemblages, collages, drawings, etc.), arranged to hunt down a universe of fabled beings. An animal house that is none other than the one that accommodates our lifestyles and ways of relating to the world, that of strangeness.
SHIRAS GALLERY. Tresor: Anna Herrgott, Jens Gussek, Jesse Magee, Ibrahim Erdogan y Judith Röder. Until May 6th
The exhibition Tresor brings together the work of five different artists to highlight, not without irony, our desire to preserve the value of things no matter how insignificant or absurd they may often seem. Thus, the presented works seek to amputate any relationship between objects and words with uses and meanings, between sculptures, photographs and other media that use as their background the act of looking in another way through the large glass.
VANGAR GALLERY. El orden de las cosas [The order of things]. Alba Abellán. Until March 26th
In the exhibition The order of things, Alba Abellán proposes a radiography of touch using various graphic procedures. The artist analyzes our relationships with in an environment that, in an accelerated gaze, we very often see only halfway or not at all.
VANGAR GALLERY. . La repetición [The repetition]. Pol Pinto. From April 29th to June 25th
Pol Pintó resorts to movement as a possibility of permanent action and reaction to what we see. In the exhibition The repetition, the artist approaches, from the parameters of the reductive that comes from the conjunction of the minimal and the abstract, a series of canvases and papers in which he limits the fixation of the gesture and the line. A performance willing to generate tensions in the peaceful look of things.
THE LIMINAL. Las formas que sostienen el discurso [The Forms That Support Discourse] . Lorenzo Sandoval, in collaboration with Floreal Rodríguez de la Paz. Until April 6th
The exhibition The Forms That Support Discourse constitutes a stratagem through which the artist Lorenzo Sandoval turns the creation of a monument upside down. Through graphic work, artist’s books, sculptures, installations and a film, the monument is reduced to a value that would pass from the symbolic to the admittedly formal. A neutralization of the symbolic-monumental that would turn out to be something else in a collective doing, in a permanent construction that would transcend the mere assimilation of forms.
