Espacio Líquido participa en el Berlin Gallery Weekend en el proyecto Valhalla
Días 26, 27 y 28 de abril
VALHALLA is a project curated by Semíramis González and supported by the Government of the Principality of Asturias. It presents three Asturian artists
along with its three galleries, in the Berlin Gallery Weekend: Chechu Álava (with Espacio Líquido gallery), Carlos Coronas (with Guillermina Caicoya art projects) and Avelino Sala (with Gema Llamazares Gallery). VALHALLA, in Norse mythology, is the paradise that exists beyond life and death. In this relationship with the idea of
"paradise" and the connection with Asturias, seeks to link the art of Asturias with the German capital.
CARLOS CORONAS (Avilés, 1964), comes with his gallery, Guillermina Caicoya art projects (Oviedo), and presents his new work, "Línea de vida" (Lifeline). A lifeline is a drawing that represents the different situations and relevant experiences that a person may have lived. It is, also, the element that different professionals use to anchor their harnesses in situations of risk. Here, it is the coastline from the point of
view of whom, from the sea, approaches to land.... Coastlines in the South of Spain, in the island of Lampedusa, Malta and Lesvos... a border element between life and death.
CHECHU ÁLAVA (Piedras Blancas, 1973), comes with Espacio Líquido Gallery (Gijón). The painting of Álava, internationally recognized to be included in the publication "100 Painters of Tomorrow", from the publisher Thames & Hudson, it delves into the mysterious, with her personal style, where the soft brushstroke and subdued color reflect complex worlds which are more than simple portraits, as full constellations of characters captured beyond the physical.
AVELINO SALA (Gijón, 1972) comes with the Gema Llamazares gallery (Gijón) and presents recent works, always with a strong political commitment. In one of the new series, the titles of the works are related with artists in the History of Art of recent decades as Joseph Beuys, Ana Mendieta, Duchamp or Barbara Kruger, all artist whose work was an involvement with social change.
