Concrete Geographies

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition


This exhibition presents ten works produced by Xavier Ribas between 2003 and 2009, which make up his series Concrete Geographies. The exhibition format, designed by the author especially for this exhibition, refers to the figure of the 'contact sheet', a concept inherited from analogue photography, where by contact the negative strips are arranged on photosensitive paper, and thus create a view of each of the images contained in the entire film sequence. These ten enlarged 'contact sheets', to which the texts that are part of the works are incorporated, replace the exhibition pieces, as these are not the works themselves that are exhibited but a' echo 'of them in the form of documentation, or of cataloging. This arrangement allows the presentation of the complete Concrete Geographies series in the specific space of the gallery.
