On the occasion of the sixth edition of Artnou, Joan Prats Gallery presents Confluencias, an exhibition that brings together works by artists Alicia Kopf, Lola Lasurt and Teresa Solar Abboud, who establish a dialogue with works of other artists of the gallery chosen by them: Hair / Carceller, Perejaume and Fernando Prats. A dynamic is based on the exchange of views between artists of different generations, leading to new connections and readings, sometimes direct, sometimes unexpected.
Alicia Kopf presents the photographic series Waterfall Chasers (2015), which alludes symbolically to the thaw as a moment of uncontrolled emotions, from representations of waterfalls. The idea of water fluidity links these works in a series of Cabello / Carceller drawings titled Self-portrait as source and Source (2005).
The work of Lola Lasurt Preparation for Wit Boven Zwar (2016), made up of oils on canvas and disguises, proposes a reconstitution of the Carnival of Aalst of 1946 from a film 16mm of the time. With a similar approach, Perejaume, in the series of drawings Ball of mountains (2007), associates the folkloric dances in the mountains, using, as is common in its practice, references to the Catalan culture that refer to universal preoccupations.
Teresa Solar Abboud, with double bite (2013), investigates the tools and photographic processes that intervened in the experiments of Harold Edgerton, questioning concepts such as protection, concealment or overexposure. Likewise, Fernando Prats, to seismograms Chuquicamata (2008), uses paraffin-graphic techniques, such as paper smoking, in order to fix moments or traces of an action in a landscape.
