‘In vain’

Exhibitions. A project by Mar Arza questions two certainties which have framed interpretations of art.

Mar Arza (Castelló de la Plana, 1976) explores the other side of categorisations, as well as certain mechanics polarised between clarifying and muddying, between standardising and imposing. Similarly, aesthetic contemplation is no longer the personal epiphany it once was. When we speak of images, we are referring to public uses that they permit or which they push us towards: When we entreat people to see, we are setting in motion a series of collective and ideological operations, the taking of a position.

‘In Vain’ questions two certainties that have framed interpretations of art, knowledge and images: clarity versus opacity, transparency versus hermeticism. The blind presents its full disruptive potential here: it is an element for looking through, yet it also creates a juncture where we find ourselves obliged to translate, decode or to assume our position even as we acquire it.

Free guided tours are available on Tuesday at 6 pm and on Saturdays and Sundays at 12 noon.

Aquest projecte qüestiona dues certeses que han emmarcat les interpretacions de l´art, el coneixement i les imatges: nitidesa contra opacitat, transparència en oposició a hermetisme, llum versus apagada. La gelosia ofereix aquí tota la seva potència disruptiva: es tracta d´un espai disposat per mirar, però a la vegada és una cruïlla des d´on ens veiem obligats a traduir, o a desxifrar, o a assumir la nostra posició mentre l´adquirim.
