Marisa González | "Piel y Pulpa" in the Palacete del Embarcadero in Santander

March 17, 2022

In the Palacete del Embarcadero, in the Port of Santander, the exhibition Piel y Pulpa, by Marisa González, can be visited since March 4th and will remain open to the public until May 1st, 2022.

The exhibition takes us, through different disciplines such as video art and photography, on a journey through bio-art that begins in the eighties. Marisa González's aim with this series of materials is to make us ask ourselves certain questions when we observe the capricious forms that nature creates as part of its natural evolution. The aim is to see how the silhouettes remind us of themes such as reproduction or death, this being controversial as it directs our gaze towards the biotechnological ethics of our society. The aim of these companies is eternal youth or the achievement of a certain canon of beauty, but in the exhibition we are given the opportunity to re-signify what we see. It politicises and changes the gaze towards what is exhibited, we understand that we eat life, while that external face makes us arrive at the idea that the personification of these materials is a problem in society. It is due to the search for this almost pornographic gaze on the part of biopolitical practices in fruits or vegetables that exhibit sensual forms.
