Tender Geometries at ARCO E-xhibitions

The exhibition entitled Tender Geometries by the artist Aitor Lajarín is now available on the ARCO E-xhibitions online platform.

Lajarín wants the viewer to stop at signs that usually go unnoticed, almost like what Walter Benjamin called the “optical unconscious”. From this perspective, his work is framed within the limits of the representability of the impossible, of the emergence not only of showing what somehow seems hidden, but of trying to give an intimate and personal version of the world, generating another to the world. at the same time where you can experiment with multiple forms, in line with the proposals of the philosopher Nelson Goodman. His painting is not only a testimony that registers the traces –as a material part of the evidence–, but a symbolic expression in which to reveal what, in principle, cannot be revealed. For this, it uses elements that are obsessively repeated (stairs, windows, ropes, wood, vessels, brick walls or universes), symbols that hide something mysterious, almost magical, interpretable from infinite angles. He conceives unusual and enigmatic spaces with their own language, to which he gives a strange familiarity by reiterating those simple principles
