Alejandro Monge - Good taste is overrated



DATES
18/07/2020 - 22/11/2020
LOCATION
Museu Palau Solterra, Torroella de Montgrí



Alejandro Monge (Zaragoza, 1988) presents Good taste is overrated, a small exhibition that reflects upon the meaning and value of money in our society. It will be held at the Sala Empordà, Museu Palau Solterra, Torroella de Montgrí, from 18th July to 22nd November 2020. 

Monge expresses his idea that money is a unifying thread, that human beings build their world around, project their dreams onto and suffer their frustrations with. He shows how they are committed to its fictitious value that we all accept as an unquestionable reality. The artist sets up his artwork (sculptures and installations) on this premise, and uses a complex technique which transforms his time and effort into a false wealth – he paints each banknote by hand using colouring pencils or acrylic paints, and creates a huge fortune – which he burns later on. Thus, he destroys his own work and asserts that money is simply a reflection of the society in which we live. 

These works of art have an ephemeral and fragile appearance that fools the observer by turning a huge quantity of euro banknotes into ashes. By so doing, the artist creates a game which uses irony to make us see that everything is not as it first appears.
