Performance. Los Torreznos


03.03.2016 Jaime Vallaure and Rafael Lamata –Los Torreznos– are representatives of performance art and its connection with conceptual currents on the work of language and the day-to-day. As artists they represented Spain at the 2007 Venice Biennale, and also in countless international institutions such as the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the Fundação Serralves in Oporto, and CA2M, La Casa Encendida or the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid.
Each piece has been carefully selected to highlight the relationship between the critical discourse of the work and the context in which it is to be interpreted. It thus brings out the central characteristic of their production that is geared towards search and expressive experimentation by way of simple forms such as gesture, language and presence. Such forms are basically accessible to anybody. They employ humour and deal with aspects of daily life, in order to become a tool of analysis from which to criticise the social structure.

Placenta escarlata

28.03.2018 [...] The construction of Gothic environments can be envisioned as an obsessive insistence that has gradually perfected Nicanor Aráoz’s art. That energy is a form of imagination that operates by exacerbating the tensions that organize the real: its expressive language is the symptomatic torment produced by the historical and hysterical antagonisms between good and evil, the healthy and the sick, the sanctioned and the perverse, crime and law, the repressive control of forms and the monstrous abundance of the deformed.
