Concha Jerez. Measurements of Time

Concha Jerez

from September 9, 2021 to November 5, 2021

In the framework of APERTURA 2021, the opening of Concha Jerez's exhibition at Freijo Gallery will take place. This exhibition will also be part of the OFF itinerary of PROYECTOR/Video Art Festival 2021

Since the early 1980s, both the concept of Measurement/Measuring and the various concepts of Time have been subjects of constant reflection that Concha Jerez has dealt with in her work from different perspectives.
The content of the exhibition is the presentation of a whole series of pieces centred on the relationship between these concepts as MEASUREMENTS OF TIME. 
Many of the works on display have their origin in installations or interventions carried out by Concha Jerez for specific places in different parts of the world. Through these installations, other pieces have emerged as residues of these interventions. It should also be noted that in the elaboration of many of the works, the author has also carried out various actions, mostly private, the residues of which have been integrated as part of the process.
Pieces such as TIEMPO LÍMITE INTERIOR (1988), MEDIDA (1986), UNIDADES DE INTERFERENCIA (1994), CAMINANDO ENTRE (2007) and QUE NOS ROBAN LA MEMORIA (2012), have their origins in installations.
Others such as XM3 DE CIUDAD REAL (1991), RESIDUOS DE UTOPÍAS ROTAS (1999) and SOPA DE ESTRELLAS (2021) arise from private actions carried out by the artist. 
Other works emerge directly as pieces that interfere with media content, such as PÁG DEL NEW YORK TIMES= 100 PAGES, DE ESTÉTICAS (1982), INTERFERENCIA EN UN MEDIO. El País (1998) and INGREDIENTES DE MENÚ DEL DÍA (2021).

Finally, the RETRATO MENTAL DE MARCEL DUCHAMP (1991).
