Violeta Mayoral, Martín Vitaliti, Ian Waelder
The project that ethall presents at Art-o-rama 2023 brings together works by three artists from different generations: Ian Waelder (Madrid 1993), Violeta Mayoral (Almería, 1988) and Martín Vitaliti (Buenos Aires, 1978).
All these artists use different languages, meeting the needs of each project. Despite the narratives inherent in any creative process, their works strive to emancipate themselves from them, giving his work a sensitivity that seduces and questions the viewer, inviting them to immerse in the imaginary of each artist to, from there, follow the threads that lead to one’s own introspection. Beyond all this, the works that the gallery presents at the fair use elements extracted from reality, to which they give a second chance to be significant.
Ian Waelder (b. Madrid, 1993) is a Spanish-American artist and publisher currently based in Frankfurt am Main. His practice explores memory and trace by isolating material histories and language in relation to his biography, working through the poetics of the accident and the repurposing of the discarded.
Violeta Mayoral (Almería, 1988) is a resident artist in Barcelona. Her practice addresses different languages and media, from the visual and photographic to the performative, and is accompanied by questions that are interested in the semiotic condition of experience.
Martín Vitaliti (Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1978) is a visual artist who investigates the logic of representation. His work has focused on the analysis of the codes of the verbiconic narration of the comic, to reflect on this language as another narrative construction of contemporary art
