MAP OF THE MOULD

08 March - 21 April 2019

Javier Arce

Map of the Mould the first solo show of the Spanish artist Javier Arce in the UK. The exhibition is part of the ongoing collaboration established between Galeria Carles Taché and No 20 Arts based on the common interest in promoting artists beyond their geographical contexts.

The artworks included in the exhibition develop from Arce’s decision to relocate to a cabin in the mountains of Cantabria, the forest region in the north of Spain where he is originally from. Contrary to the common implications that a remote cabin might evoke, this decision was not a quest for isolated loneliness but rather, an exercise to foster creativity by connecting with nature, an opportunity to re-evaluate contemporary society and the relationship between the two of them.
