FRANCESCA MARTÍ: TRANSFORMATION
“Transformation” is the title of the retrospective exhibition of the Spanish multimedia artist Francesca Martí, curated by Pilar Ribal & Kees van Twist, that will offer a wide approach to one of the most innovative European artists production, both in the sphere of traditional languages as well as in the domain of new technologies. The artist’s works go beyond the limits of painting and sculpture to explore the languages of photography and video art as dynamic mediums. Her deep and engaged reflection about human been emotions, ideals, cultural backgrounds or common universal challenges take form in thematic series of artworks such as The fly, Movements & Soul, Tears, Screen, Crystal, The Wall, Scream, Planet of fusions, Cities in the Crooked Line & Migrants.
Making of individual dreams and wishes an opportunity for collective change, “Transformation” emphasizes the question of the mixing and melting together. The ideas of exchanging and the symbiosis of old and the new unify the contents of the exhibition and embrace its artworks making of them the different visual analogies of the same message. The importance of self-consciousness and the acceptance of difference -as all cultural backgrounds are a rich heritage that we all share- are among the most meaningful reflections proposed by this project. This is what fusing means: the combination of knowledge and experiences as a social process that may lead humanity to peace.
