Slowtrack Gallery, Madrid
Video Projection with Aluminium Paint
The world that surrounds finds its form though use, in the past physical acts instigated a change in composition. Today’s reality is more plastic and can re configure itself in advance of desire. The new Wallpainting created for an exhibition at Slowtrack Gallery is the first to incorporate digital projection with painted elements and gold leaf. Its starting point came from the incidental fact that Madrid has the second largest fish market in the world and yet is 300km from the ocean. This developed into a work that provides a visual exploration into the decoupling of contemporary existence from tangible points of reference:
Have we entered into a new Eden or are individual landscapes of desire mathematically averaged into an undulating sea of commercial possibility? Should we bask in the technological light of this liquid formlessness, passively floating over the hidden depths?
