Sergi Aguilar: Reverse/Obverse (1972–2015)
BARCELONA, SPAIN  •  Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA).  •  4 June 2015 - 31 January 2016

Reverse/Obverse (1972-2015) takes us through four decades of the sculptural practice of Sergi Aguilar (Barcelona, 1946). The exhibition is organised as a sinuous journey, a non-chronological account that explores certain consistent creative tensions in the artist's work, such as the dialogue between object and process, moderation and accumulation, solidity and lightness, the artificial and the natural, and place and displacement.

As an artist, Sergi Aguilar questions some of the principal paradigms that have shaped the language of sculpture in the context of Spain from the early seventies to the present. At the same time, seen from today's perspective, his work minimises the role played by formalist interpretations. This uncomfortable stance with the historiographic narrative and its reading codes, with general genealogies and certain specific analysis, not only affects this sculptor from Barcelona but a whole generation of artists whose work has evolved beyond the attributions that were once ascribed to them.

The exhibition is structured around five episodes - ‘Tools and measures', ‘Geometries', ‘Signs and landscape', ‘Place and territory' and ‘Fugues and time' - that create a dialogue between the pieces and the thematic cycles of different periods, recreating the dynamics of the artist's own working space.
