Santi Moix (Barcelona, 1960) is a versatile creator, who makes sculptures, drawings, ceramics, wall paintings, as well as book illustrations. And all of them comprise his form of expression, which reside in the confluence in which figuration and abstraction are mixed. Although he is well known in Spain (specially for the work he developed at the Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona and the frescoes in the church of Sant Victor de Seurí) and increasingly known in the United States (since he received a fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, had his work exhibited at Pace Gallery, developed a mural for Prada SoHo store and did interventions at the Brooklyn Museum), he presented his work in France only once: at the Musée de L’hippodrome in Lille in 1989.
For this reason, the gallery wanted to present to the French audience the multifaceted work of Moix in the context of Art-o-rama. For this edition, Moix is going to unfold a wall drawing on the walls of the gallery booth and concomitantly will present a series of porcelain sculptures alongside with paintings that paintings that intertwine order and small chaos, balance and deviations, what is exhibited and what is protected. A work of perfect imperfection.
