Pep Agut's exhibition is the second individual held at the gallery and the first at our
headquarters in Madrid coinciding with his exhibition "Meridiano de Madrid: dream and
lie" at Palacio de Cristal of the Reina Sofía Museum until August.
At the crossroads between reality and fiction, art becomes a limbo capable of producing
both without, paradoxically, being able to define itself. Art seems to be, thus, like a
Heraclitian river that borders them both, affirming itself in its own dilution and moving
downstream, always, with another step (not) further.
" The betrayal betrayed " drags in its waters, like boulders, the positions of René
Magritte and Marcel Broodthaers. I will dare to define the first as the artist of
dysfunction and the second as the artist of death. Interpreting them, I will drown by
affirming with my work that: 1) This is not a corpse, and 2) The images drown in the
waters of their own betrayed betrayal.
Three specific works are displayed in the gallery spaces.
At the beginning, "Projects for my own Stone (weekly)”, a diary on my own deaths and
their representations. 7 deaths as the 7 days of the week.
In the second, with " The betrayal betrayed ”, references the two great Belgian artists
(Magritte & Broodthaers), to reality, representation, delirium, and death executed on
people or objects. Images always from power.
In the last space, with “This is not a corpse (business cards)”, articulates the living
presence of many of the people executed by the Franco dictatorship regime in the years
after the civil war collected by the Memoria y Libertad foundation.
I would like to summarize the whole of the works with a suggestion: to forget the past
one must remember to do so”
