Code Inconnu // Group Show

From February the 11th until April the 10th 2016
Opening: Thursday the 11th, from 19h // press and collector´s preview, from 18h

In a crowded Parisian boulevard, someone throws a crumpled piece of paper on the hand of a beggar. This is the bond that, for an instant, joins two disparate paths, changing their lives forever. This group exhibition pays a type homage to the French film director Michael Haneke, taking the same title of his perhaps best known film CODE INCONNU. The exhibition shows a selection of artworks by different artists that come from diverse disciplines and ways of understanding art, sharing the same space and time, causing a dialogue and creating a thematic thread through the shape, colour and image.

With paper as support Berto Martinez series: Fabric, presents his most personal series. At the same time, the artist Max Gärtner explores the possibilites that the paper allows him to create graphic representations that explore the tensions between reality and metaphysical. Victoria Campillo and Patrtik Grijalvo share the technique of photography, but in a very different ways, Campillo builds a particular art history “with names” from a visual form, while Patrik Grijalvo, creates pieces of a delicate and subtle volume, achieving a serene composition of levels built from the attributes of a photographic surface. The painter Salustiano and the sculptor Mario Dilitz emphasize the human figure as the center of their work, giving each piece details and intensity.
