Limited capacity (50 people for visit).
The work of Ignasi Aballí permanently challenges the attention and perception of the viewer. Using strategies characteristic of conceptual art, such as text, archives and documents, his projects subvert distinctions between artistic genres such as painting, literature, photography, installation, film and video and also question the system of conventions of the representation of the work of art and the cultural or economic value of the objects.
He has developed an extensive work in photography, video, experimental cinema and cultural journalism, especially as an art critic in the La Vanguardia newspaper, and previously as a film and music critic. His photographic work is abstract and focuses on topics such as light, energy, water and the flow of time. He has curated exhibitions and experimental film programs, and is also the author of comic scripts drawn by Guillem Cifré, Pere Joan and Antoni Calonge.
He began his photographic career as a photojournalist working for media such as El País, and later, he directed his photographic work towards the leading fashion firms. He has worked for Mango, Diesel, Miss Sixty, G Star, Pepe Jeans, Lacoste, Levis, Nike. Txema is known for his sophisticated style, experimentation, surrealism and graphic expression. His work has appeared in numerous magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, V Magazine and Vogue.
