The exhibition links diverse attempts to chart the common territory while facing entropy.
The exhibit presents for the first time in the gallery a connection between the works of Aleksandra Mir, Knut Åsdam, Perejaume, Carla Zaccagnini and Alejandro Vidal.
The dynamics of the pieces lies around the new maps of old territories from which in an uneven but also complementary way, scenes realized from an apparent recreational posture, in turn reveal a plot of conflict are set out.
Carla Zaccagnini’s video spins around the non identity of the territory, that which is inhabited by its own absence.
In Knut Åsdam’s photographies, the impossibility of communication becomes evident through the tension zones and the sentences that prevent an outcome.
In the work of Aleksandra Mir, direction and position from the non place manifests its own process, the digital representational surface alters the form of perception in the work of Perejaume, and thus also in the occult, that which threatens us and the photosensitive images of Alejandro Vidal.
