Curated by Teresa Blanch

Salvador Juanpere (Vilaplana, Tarragona, 1953, based in Sant Cugat) investigates the creative fact in the recesses of time with a personal poetic skill intertwining ideas and images from all eras. Questioning the iconographies and the voices of the artists, he traces possible links, placing special emphasis on apparently irrelevant aspects that the images hide. For ten years he has been recreating rare extractions from ancient statues and has recently rescued unexpected coincidences in comparative drawings. A laborious work of sculpture and drawing, guided by conceptual motivations, which has led him to inscribe on the faces of prominent artists what they think about ordinary artistic work.

This is an expanded sample, with new works, from the exhibition “Perforate time” that took place between November 2022 and January 2023 at the Tecla Sala Center in Hospitalet de Llobregat. With the support of Sorea and the Department of Culture of the Generalitat of Catalonia
