CCA Andratx cordially invites you to the opening of the exhibition on Saturday the 8th of April, 12PM at CCA ESPAI.
CCA Andratx is pleased to present the first exhibition by the artists Berto Martínez Tello and Narcís Díaz at the CCA ESPAI. The exhibition entitled "Aporia" displays a selection of collaborative works by the two artists, which has been specially created for this project.
"Aporia" unfolds a certainly provocative panorama, however contradictory at the same time. The approximately ten works comprising the show, open a window to uncertain landscapes, questioning the current social Spanish situation. Technically, the works present an intense surrealist aesthetic and portray figures that are unfinished forms, almost an allegory of humanity, where anyone can feel identified.
This is the first exhibition showing collaborative works by the two artists and is also their first exhibition in Mallorca. Both artists, based in Barcelona, completed their Fine Arts studies at the University of Barcelona (2009) and their work has been presented in a large number of individual exhibitions and group projects.These are people who have nothing to lose, they have been abandoned as a social surplus - a condition that can often only be escaped from through migration, criminality and all kinds of illegal practices. They are a class of "superfluous beings" that the State (wherever it exists), and the same market, do not know what to do with them.
