Galería Elvira González is happy to present the second solo exhibition of Chema Madoz. Obra reciente 2015 – 2018. Displaying the artist’s recent work, the exhibition will have 34 black and white photographs. We see how the decontextualization of the image of the photographed object provides a new meaning, which in itself has a new meaning for each viewer.From the 90’s onwards Madoz develops the concept of the image of an object and its different visual meanings, which is a recurrent issue in his photography to date.
“Thanks to Madoz we know how many different lives a match or a ladder could have had if their destiny had not been to finally serve our need for fire or to overcome gravity”, notes the philosopher and art historian Luis Arenas. “All the worlds of Madoz are, certainly, unlikely worlds, but not impossible ones: they are before us to prove how real they truly are”.
