Bernardí Roig. Films 2000-2018
Opening: April 20th
The project, conceived as a retrospective, aims to analyse and review the complex universe of Majorcan artist Bernardí Roig (Palma, 1965) based on the presentation and decoding of his audiovisual work. The pieces will be installed in an exciting scenic arrangement, emphasising the initiatory journey between appropriation and recreation of his images and visual constructions.
These works tell us about an insatiable and nonsensical sisyphic absurd where the solitary figures of each of the videos act, caught in the repetition of gestures, in a sameness spiral. Either carrying a lamp on his back, sewing his mouth forever, spinning with a spotlight on his head without being able to get out of the claustrophobic spaces of rationalism, climbing a mountain constantly to never reach the ruins of the language philosopher’s cottage, or trapped between laughter and the aphonia of mute insults.
All works of art belong to the Es Baluard Museum Collection and have been created between the years 2000 and 2018, including three new and yet unseen productions that represent another step forward in the work of this artist.
