Crisálidas (Chrysalises) is a mental construction using the biological concept as a metaphor and organizational springboard for a universe of fragmented events and emergences in transformation, inviting us to partake in an architecture of instinctive and automatic recreations, parallel to weakly conscious or unconscious mental states, somewhere between enveloping atmospheres of presence and simultaneous loss.

Crisálidas (Chrysalises) is a mental construction using the biological concept as a metaphor and organizational springboard for a universe of fragmented events and emergences in transformation, inviting us to partake in an architecture of instinctive and automatic recreations, parallel to weakly conscious or unconscious mental states, somewhere between enveloping atmospheres of presence and simultaneous loss.

Crisálidas responds to an articulated collage process with everyday images from various mass media, reproduced in an intuitive drawing, and again regenerated through layering and chance encounters with other drawings created in a similar fashion.

In an enveloping fantasy of the everyday to the transcendental, the exhibition is a mental landscape of strange condensations from the real world which, amplifying genetic diversity, give shape to other unexplored worlds, poetic and metaphoric hybrids of our capacity of being.

From an emotional, sensitive and often playful perspective, these entwined and reabsorbed images, protecting the delicacy of the unexpected, are fused and overlayered to recreate different variants open to a whole series of feedback possibilities, creating a partial and subjective vision of a society where signs of identity are found in constant mutation.

In biology, imago is the final phase in the metamorphosis of an insect, whether from a nymph (incomplete metamorphosis) or after emerging from the pupa (complete metamorphosis). Crisálidas enables the process of a drawing in change, through the incomplete metamorphosis of the image, the nymph of the imago, in non-exclusively biological terms.

In this way, Crisálidas develops from an accidental gestation with a dreamlike substrate, allowing the contingent and allusive to transform into form, yet without any imposed formal order.

Opening Friday 30th at 8 pm.
At 8.30 pm, during the opening, a concert by Abel Hernández (El Hijo) will take place
