Lola Lasurt, Javier Peñafiel

Opening 15/5/2021 from 11am to 2pm

 

17/06, 18h30: Visit with the artists. + info

 

From the 15 of May, we shall exhibit the first collaborative exhibition by the artists Lola Lasurt and Javier Peñafiel, titled Desde hace tiempo que nuestras comunicaciones no vienen de un lugar reconocible [It has been a long time since our communications have not come from a recognizable place].

 

 

‘One in one, a transmission line.

 

For a long time, Lola and Javier have been working, imagining, drawing, describing, and reporting choreographies.

 

The fear of being contagious produced a reduction in contact, this fear both reduces and paralyzes at the same time.

 

To imagine co-immunities is a cry for help.

 

This is the point of the exhibition, the moment before the transmission. When the gaps in memory seem less passive, memory shakes them up. The memory of any place does not need the quantum to unfold.

 

We present a phrase/frieze, constructed from various completed works that is not a synthesis but an unfolding.

 

We are not simply one whole.

 

For a period of time Lola choreographed performances under water. Synchronized Swimming. The water has always been a place of choreography for both artists. Javier, personally affected by bone problems, is a disciplined swimmer of aquatic Chi Kung.

 

The conversation between Lola and Javier focuses on repeated figurers, unique ideas, personal dances, theater signs and the insubordination of the contexts.

 

Javier uses a phrase from a long time ago, for the things that are happening in the world, the removal of patrimony, changes, movements, the future. He refers to this step as Desactivo Domicilios (deactivated domiciles), the moment before the explosion, the prevention of the catastrophe, the unwritten chapter.

 

A phrase/ frieze of serial works by Lola and Javier extends over the gallery in form of a choreographed line.

 

Various works and videos accumulate in the main hall, ready for departure, unsure of when and at what speed, nor their exit strategy or shipping protocols.

 

Objects are most enigmatic when they are circulating.

 

‘I still remember when a change of residence meant the transfer of a (telephone) line, and it has been a long time since our communications have not come from a recognizable place.’

 

Ultimately, all transitive.’

After studying philosophy, Javier Peñafiel concentrated his work during the 1980s into ambits of system criticism. He formed himself outside of academic structures. In 1994, Manel Clot, curator of La Capella de l’Antic Hospital de la Santa Creu de Barcelona, offered him the opportunity to show his work for the first time at an individual show.

Mais nada se move

Mais nada se move em cima do papel.

O desenho como pensamento

 

14 NOV. 2020 – 18 ABRIL 2021 

CAA – Centro de Artes de Águeda, Portugal

 

Comisaria: Sara Antónia Matos

 

Exposición colectiva, con obras de Julião Sarmento.

 

 

Enmarcada en el ciclo O desenho como pensamento (El dibujo como pensamiento), de CAA – Centro de Arte Águeda, la exposición “Mais nada se move em cima do papel (Nada más se mueve sobre el papel)” adopta como título el primer verso de un poema de Al Berto y recoge obras de artistas que a lo largo de los años, en sus propios caminos y lenguajes, han venido trabajando el dibujo como un registro indisciplinado, en algunos casos transversal a sus prácticas.

 

Las obras expuestas muestran que el dibujo refleja una condición previa, poco tangible, comparable al pensamiento, como si el gesto o la intuición que precede a la inscripción de la línea se desplazara o flotara sobre el papel, y luego se formara sobre soportes bidimensionales y tridimensional, ganan cuerpo y adquieren formulaciones escultóricas, sonoras, atmosféricas y espaciales.

Joan Prats Warehouse. Passatge Saladrigas, 5 Barcelona.

 

 

As part of Artnou, Galeria Joan Prats presents the exhibition ‘El retorn a Ripollet’ by Marcel Rubio Juliana (Barcelona, 1991), that brings together a wide range of works, made between 2018 and 2019.

 

Marcel Rubio Juliana expresses himself mainly through drawing and painting, although his approach to creation has to do with the literary essay. Large charcoal canvases and oil miniatures confer the rhythm of a fragmented story that develops an apparently linear story, with unity of time and place. We could see certain analogies with the “nouveau roman”, where different points of view are adopted away from the narrator’s unique vision and where the writing itself acquires autonomy regardless of what is written. The Dogma film script could be another reference: both use real locations, flee from superfluous effects and seek a crude realism, creating a series of rules to follow and, sometimes, to transgress.

 

Alluding to his own experiences and desires, the artist evokes a summer day in which an stranger unknowingly becomes the main character of a singular story. Located in a coastal city near Barcelona, different sequences invite us on a journey in which, following a phenomenological method, contemplation, drift and falling in love offer a precise description of the environment.

 

The narration follows in the footsteps of a young man, from the train station to the city center, passing by the beach, the Yacht Club and various shopping streets, creating a cinematographic record of the places evoked. It also shows us bodies enjoying the water, the view of the sun over the sea, a kiosk, the facade of a theater, stains of humidity on the wall, a flower, a group of friends on a bar´s terrace… everything is there, present in the memory, although everything could be imagined.

 

 

Marcel Rubio Juliana (Barcelona, 1991) studied at Pau Gargallo School of Art and Design (Badalona), where he graduated in 2007. He later studied the Fine Arts degree at the University of Barcelona, which he completed in 2013.

 

Since then, he has shown his work in the following exhibitions: Surfeit, Fundación Arranz-Bravo, l’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona (2018); Swab Art Fair, Barcelona, represented by Passatge Studio gallery (2016); The muscles of Zarathustra (with the writer Victor Balcells Matas), Passatge Studio, Barcelona (2016); Pasajes, La Puntual de Mercantic, Sant Cugat, Barcelona (2016); Carles Boïges, cycle of exhibitions, with the collaboration of Tom Carr and his team, TCTeamWork, Badalona (2014); University of Fine Arts, Barcelona (2014); Drawing the night (group exhibition), Anquin Gallery, Reus, Tarragona (2014).

 

He has been nominated for different awards: Bienal Torres Garcia, Mataró, with the work Spectro, 2016; Ynglada-Guillot Foundation, with the drawing Geschlagen, 2015, exhibited at Espai Volart, Barcelona; Drawing Prize of the Güell Foundation, exhibited in Palau Güell, Barcelona, 2015-16; Art Biennial : Tapiró Painting Prize with the drawing What time is it?, 2013.

 

In 2021 he will present an exhibition at Espai 13 of the Miró Foundation, in a cycle curated by Pere Llobera.

Fundació Arranz-Bravo

Inauguració 9.05.2019

10.05 – 29.09.2019

 

Pablo del Pozo (Badajoz, 1994) presenta Al muerto, tiempo encima, el seu darrer projecte expositiu per la Fundació Arranz-Bravo. Comissariada pel crític i historiador de l’art Jordi Garrido, l’exposició proposa un trajecte doble a través del procés creatiu de l’artista i del procés de coneixement humà. Mitjançant tres elements diferents, la matèria, l’essència i l’espai, del Pozo reflexiona sobre la relació amb l’entorn mitjançant el cos i sobre el seu propi trajecte en la creació artística.
