Ana Mas Projects presents at its Barcelona headquarters Mon corps, mon esprit, an exhibition by the Catalan conceptual artist Àngels Ribé. The show is made up of a set of pieces that includes a dialogue between his most recent work and his work made between the 1970s and 1980s.
The work of Àngels Ribé (Barcelona, 1943) is framed within the international panorama as an essential part for the understanding of conceptual art. In this sense, she is considered a pioneer, whose practice ranges from the use of drawing to performance, through sculpture, photography and installation; endowed with a constant sensitivity for space, shape and understanding of the world through his work. Since its inception, Ribé’s work sought to overcome minimalist logic by using his body and exploring nature through various ephemeral actions, contributing to the dematerialization of the artistic object and therefore changing the established rules to create a place between the viewer and The masterpiece.
The set of works presented on this occasion begins with his sculptural and photographic work made in the United States and Spain between the 1970s and 1980s, and which also includes his most recent work. In Mon corps, mon esprit (2017), the artist crystallizes through photographic images, problems of the spirit and the body, a duality that manifests constantly from the beginning of her career but that, in recent years, incorporates new expressive resources ( digital image, color, among others …).
