36 Views from Within shows the most recent works by Alejandro Guijarro. It is an exhibition in which the artist examines the space that emerges between objects and their photographic representation, exploring their limits and new possibilities. Guijarro also presents an intersectional look at photography, painting and engraving. His creative process reveals a technique akin to Surrealist painting: decalcomania. Using a kind of obsolete instant film and its developing chemicals as pigments, the artist brings this technique into the realm of photography, blurring the line between the real and the fictitious, the tangible and the imagined. He manages to break down the boundaries of the photographic image and create a fragmented relationship between the object and its representation. In this way, Guijarro manages to create a series of landscapes that pay tribute to Katsushika Hokusai and his 36 Views of Mount Fuji.  He considers it an inner journey through landscapes which have a geographic route as well, and he encourages us as viewers to create our own journey.

 

Exhibition availbale in the gallery from June 5 to July 31.
