    12 november, 2002 - 12 january, 2003

    The project Desapariciones (Disappearances) by Aballí (Barcelona, 1958) sets out from the literary and film work of the Frenchman Georges Perec (1936-1982), particularly the novel La disparition (1969), whereby Perec performs constrained writing as he leaves out the letter “e” from the text. Aballí takes this element to reflect upon the referential and the subversion of the conventions that cause a work of art to be considered in a particular way.

    ATLAS

    How to carry the world on one’s back?

    Atlas is a proposal to put the frame of thought introduced by German art historian Aby Warburg (1866-1929) into the context of historical knowledge and images. This is not a monographic exhibition on Warburg, but a journey through the history of images from 1914 until the present day, where warburgism constitutes the genius loci.

  • Ignasi Aballí Mapamundi 2010, 2011. Collage on paper, 30 x 21 cm each one (110-115 copies approx.). Artist’s collection
    October 27, 2015 - March 14, 2016

    In October the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía will present an exhibition devoted to Ignasi Aballí (Barcelona 1958). The output of this Catalan artist offers a conceptual reflection on the representation and perception of mediums such as painting, the object, photography, fiction, film and video. His work, which started in the 1980s, invents and reorganises texts, images, materials and processes, exploring presence and absence, the material and immaterial, the visible and the invisible, transparency and opaqueness, appropriation and creation to relate the overabundance of images in modern-day society to the lack of meaning we can assign to them.
