Marlborough, Madrid / Barcelona / New York / London
Pedro Almodovar, Santi Moix
For Art-o-rama 2023, Marlborough puts in dialogue Santi Moix’s aritistic practice with filmmaker Pedro Almodovar’s photographic work. In this way, the proposal will be much deeper and interesting to the public of the fair.
Santi Moix’s work is characterized by accumulation and fragmentation, sensuality and a poetic sense of form in a flat and dense space. He breaks with the image of continuity, creates digressions that go back and forth to finally build schematic biomorphic structures. This connection maintain a close conceptual and aesthetic dialogue with those of Almodóvar who made compositions with flowers, glass vases and pots reminding us of the humility of traditional still-lifes and simultaneously paying homage to the design of Etore Sotsass. Each one of them are working with digressions, biomorphic structures and intuitive encounters that are produced during our day to day.
