Curator: Juan Canela
This exhibition brings together a group of artists whose works revolve around the significance of the material used and its relation to time, incorporating a performative line and addressing profound political, social and historical themes in their exploration of the relationships between man, objects, nature and the symbols surrounding all of them.
Throw a rock and see what happens: this simple gesture is the starting point for investigating the political and symbolic significance of the object and the body, and the relationship between them, in the present paradigm, using contemporary materiality—or immateriality—as the pretext. The exhibition brings together a group of artists whose works revolve around the significance of the material used, its relationship with time, and a performative line that establishes a dialogue between the body and the object. These elements—and the agencies that arise between them—cause a number of political, social, structural and historical themes to well up, themes that explore the relationships between man, objects and nature, and the symbols surrounding all of them.
Throw a Rock and See What Happens is a place where certain lines of thought converge and traverse the exhibition space, turning it into a testing ground in order to see the world through different eyes, understand the relationships that arise within it, and so be able to imagine a new paradigm.
