Weak Mirror

Weak Mirror at Groc Projects

21.12.2019 Guille Caivano

This show presents a collection of recent works, the paintings are hosted and surrounded by objects that where done specifically for the space.

The whole installation could be seen as a a self portrait of a painter and its habits, tools and obsessions.

As I see it, painting is a form of escapism from the world, but one that even though it gives the perfect excuse to be left alone engages with the world obliquely.

One paints the world, but a personal and therefore distorted reflection of it all, creating an unclear visual narrative, therefore the view- er has to complete a possible reading.

We are pleased to announce Groc Projects inaugural exhibition, Scum, which brings together a group of artists living and working in Barcelona. Initially a self deprecating joke, the derogatory title frames both artist and their by product, Art, as analogous to the accumulation of unwanted waste. With artists working within painting, sculpture, performance and installation the show presents an eclectic group of works through the themes of production, taste and value.
