Les contorsions de les algues deshidratant-se
Eulàlia Rovira & Adrian Schindler

finissage+ vermut, July 7th 12,30-15h

Contradicting the yearnings of rationalism, the ornament returns with force, either on our skin or that of the buildings. The exhibition that Eulàlia Rovira and Adrian Schindler present to Homesession relates two apparently unrelated types of ornamentation: one manifests itself in organicist architecture and the other in tribally inspired tattoos. Crystallizing both fears and fascination, these forms lead us to the tumultuous curves of the sea agitated by the colonial past and environmental disasters. Starting from two iconic buildings on Paseo de Gracia, La Pedrera and Toyo Ito’s façade, the work reconsiders ornamentation as a possible place from which to face the conflictual relationships we entertain with the environment and difference.

Project winner of the Güell 2018 Foundation Visual Arts Grant, in collaboration with Homesession.
