Ciudad de México
Juan Silió Gallery is participating for the first time in ZONA MACO International Art Fair, one of the most important art fairs in Latin America, which will be taking place in Mexico City. Galleries from 27 different countries are taking part in 2018’s edition, which is its fifteenth one. In this very first participation, pieces of two of the last series by one of the most internationally renowned Spanish photographers will be shown: Joan Fontcuberta (Barcelona, 1955). Both series, entitled “Trauma” and “Gastropoda”, are related to the course of time and the interaction of external factors, both atmospheric and organic, on the composition itself of a basic material in photography, such as paper. On the first one, the artist reflects about physical and chemical decomposition of the image and photographic support; what happens when the image disappears from the own photography. In “Gastropoda”, snails modify the physical and conceptual appearance of, in this case, the invitations for exhibition premieres sent to the artist’s home in the field, which represents photographic reproductions on paper of different kind of artworks.
