Lucía Mendoza Gallery presents the exhibition of the multidisciplinary artist Alicia Martín. retratodeartista opens on June 9th and it can be visited until July 27th. The exhibition, curated by art critic Francisco Carpio, is part of PHotoEspaña 2018, photography festival which celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year.
Through her personal look, Alicia Martín proposes in this exhibition a dialogue between photography, video and installations. That way, an approach to this universe of elements-objects is proposed, exemplifying one of the most suggestive relationships between literature and plastic arts.
The book – “that amazing instrument”, in the words of Borges – is undoubtedly one of the main references in the work of Alicia Martín. A book that becomes a metaphor and a polysemic icon, that reveals new plastic, formal and visual readings.
