Àlex MonnerNADA NUEVO BAJO EL SOL

ÀLEX MONNER
Barcelona, 1995
@alecs995

He considers the camera as a natural prolongation of his personal artistic need. For him, photography is a hobby that mixes up enjoyable type of experiences: the instant relation with the  things you decide to focus with , the braveness of being able to manipulate that reality in order to create a new image that wasn’t there before and the inner pleasure of making compositions,  are three of those multiple things that made him a picture explorer.   

This is a visual travelling diary, a wasting time method, a way to show how I compose with shapes and colors while I walk thinking in general aspects of life or just feeling elevated through nothingness. Being romantic and naughty, clever and silly,  sometimes capturing the soul of things, sometimes leaving my own soul in what I guess I saw.  That’s this object, personal visual decisions gathered on folded paper.

His pictures appeared in magazines like El País Semanal, XL Semanal, Ignant, GUP, Wired or the British Journal of Photography. In 2018 He was selected to Encontros da artistas novos recidency. Nowadays He combines personal projects with assignments related with architecture and design.

‘A Trilogy of Unsual Architectures’ is a photobook with three minibooks inside that resumes three Arnau Rovira’s projects based in Architecture. He reflects with images how architecture can be a neoliberal tool to force humans into submission. If every building has a funcionality and purpose, Rovira’s three architectures go through a cloud of false happiness in which reason is suspended.

“I’ve gone on many other journeys under my own steam—hiking trips, canoe trips, other cycling trips—and whenever conditions turn hostile I always feel very, very small. I look at Guim Tio’s paintings, their daunting immensities, their empty planes, their stoic mountain ranges, their wide oblivious horizons, and I point to the tiny, powerless, insignificant figure barely visible on a broad, heedless canvas, and I think: that’s me.”

Álex MarcoFollowing the right trace it’s always a difficult decision

Álex Marco
Valencia, 1986
@alexmarco.dmg

Álex Marco (Valencia, 1986) is a visual artist focused on painting and video as his main communication media. Actually works at his studio in Valencia where his work emphasizes the visual idea of the city: traces, stains, and dirt represents how human actions provokes an excuse to promote pictorial language as a means of representation.

Taking the city and its infinite living options as my reference, my work presents a visual analysis of the image, the interferences, the effects and signs which construct the urban context; all of this via practical and experimental research in paint and video formats. We have daily contact with paint, as a result of the actions we produce in our dialogue with the city: brands, marks, gestures, scratches, imperfections, stains and residues, portray the characteristics of our identity as inhabitants. Accordingly, my approach brings together different aspects of our ability to review, create, communicate and transform any daily activity into a resource for the content or subject matter of paintings, videos and installations. I am especially interested in how canvas and camera explore manipulative possibilities and the consequences which are derived from the mechanisms of our perception. The main feature of my research is the experience of this relationship: conscience and the point of contact between processes – all at once immediate and distant, real and fictitious - , between thought and vision. My starting point is an open structure which reflects the nature of that which is born in the studio, enhancing what is left behind for the spectator to complete. Likewise, I understand that the image establishes a visual statement irrespective of time and space to produce something new, consequently the possibilities in the scope of work expand greatly.

@ginagimenez

Regina Giménez is a Spanish artist based in Barcelona, graduated in Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona. She has exhibited in galleries and museums of modern and contemporary arts. Her solo exhibitions include, El Sol i la Taula, 2018 – MAC Mataró, Adoptar otra naturaleza, 2017 – Anamasprojects gallery Barcelona, Arquitecture d’Aujourdhui, 2015 – The green Parrot gallery, Barcelona and Símbols convencionals, 2014 – Gallerie Pierre Hallet, Bruxelles.

Her work is featured in many collections: MUSAC, Leon, Lawrence Benenson, Atlanta and Coprime Fondation, Paris.

El Sol i la Taula” / “The Sun and the Table ” is a world divided between the real and the imaginary, by means of geometries, maps and constructions that provoke an introspective journey in the spectator. As indicated by the critic Frederic Montornés, the work of Regina Giménez is a research around the aesthetic and formal aspect of graphic representations, that disclose an obsolete knowledge and that the artist releases and gives them autonomy from their beauty and simplicity. Her work, is a versatile work represented through objects of different nature, from a carpet to a vinyl, passing through paper and cloth. Through these objects, universal dialogues such as abstraction and figuration, color and black and white or the whole with the fragment, are materialized.

@oriolaribau

He attended Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona (2009), and later he finished the Master of Artistic Creation at the same University with the highest honors (2010). A new phase began in Limoges, where he worked, research studied and developed around the porcelain. During the year 2013, this research makes him travel to Jingdezhen, China, where surrounded by ceramics and craftsmen he worked on the application of ceramics and porcelain in the Chinese urban landscapes. He is currently working to apply all this knowledge in the architecture and urban planning that surrounds him.

The Shadow Series is the materialization of Jun’ichirō Tanizaki's thought from his book ‘In Praise of Shadows’. As it is described in the book, in the West light has always represented beauty, but in traditional Japanese aesthetics it is the shadow that keeps an enigma as attractive and powerful as the light of the West.
