GRAF brings you the programme of contemporary art in Catalonia. The agenda that combines all agendas.

Action – Pere Llobera

16:0019:00 h
Venue: Bombon projects
Trafalgar 45, local 3
08010 Barcelona

Holding on to secure formulas protects and accommodates the thinking when we are fragile. An example: to escape through Sudoku or to play on the telephone in the tube on the way to work seemingly dissipating the sensation of going around the wheel of a hamster. And if we talk about something closer to me, there are the painters in crisis that hold on to geometry; the lines, or the patterns; but also the most extreme realism copied from the photos that allow the artist something like activating the automatic pilot and avoiding taking important and hardworking decisions. We continue to talk then about “strict forms” and other ways of making our “sonnet” palliative.

My new gallery has been almost senseless betting on my less predictable work and I am happy to compete in these terms with them.

Let’s be senseless then, let’s sabotage the predictable and ourselves.

There are no guarantees that the work will be good at the end. The only guarantee is that we won’t be following “strict forms” and that we are in plenitude of form to make mistakes. We even want to make mistakes.
