Vicenç Viaplana - Vicenç Viaplana. True light does not shine




DATES
18/03/2021 - 21/05/2021
LOCATION
Centre Cultural La Mercè



The title of this exhibition – an excerpt from a Japanese koan that is also the title of one of the painter’s works – aims to highlight the ethical and aesthetic stance of an artist whose work expresses more than it shows and hides more than it reveals. It is a work that contains resonances of cinema, photography and digital media, and that delves into the same question: the search for truth or, in other words, transcendence. And to do so, it takes on pieces of recognizable elements that make us feel part of an illusion without which we lose the point of reference that we desire to go there. From these faint presences – sometimes almost dissolved in a liquid atmosphere – Viaplana modulates the intensity of the light and provokes a tension that gives way to a dialectic of opposites: emptiness and fullness, chaos and order, and reality and fiction. All in all, it is a work that faces us with the abyss of a world that reveals itself as enigmatic and unknown.
