Mamotreto & Antinarrations
from November 14, 2017 to January 6, 2018
First solo exhibition in Spain of the Mexican artist Ricardo Nicolayevsky (México, 1961).
In it we present his most recent work, Mamotreto, in which he summarizes, as a publication, his thoughts and experiences. This work of "contemporary visual poetry" is dedicated to the women of his family (grandmothers, mother and sister).
Several videos dialogue with Mamotreto, presented in different formats of projection, which belong to the decade of the 80's, when the artist lived in New York. They are experimental films , in many of which the artist also composes the music. They have the aroma of portraits, of his friends, of his surroundings, of the city of New York, and of the madness in which they were immersed.
Recently, MoMA acquired a significant number of this Nicolayevsky collection. We present some of them.
Accompanying these works are very unique photographs, which bring us closer to this filmmaker artist.
