Ignasi Aballí: This is not the end
BARCELONA • ARTIUM • 5 May - 2 September 2012
|This Is Not the End, the title of this exhibition of work by Ignasi Aballí (Barcelona, 1958), indicates the short-lived nature of the display, as well as the artist's wish to avoid any temptation to present a retrospective of his body of work. The exhibition brings together various new pieces by the artist, alongside a selection of other works produced over the last ten years, most of which are part of larger series and address the artist's main areas of interest (film, literature, colour, etc.). |
There is an old saying that when the wise man points to the moon with his finger, the fool looks at the finger. In Aballí's work, the viewer finds the counterpoint to this proverb, since the artist invites us to look in a single movement at both the moon and the finger pointing to it. An example illustrating this is the principle behind one of the films that Aballí has produced for the exhibition, in which the camera turns-during the screening of a film-towards the projector rather than the screen.
