The Drunken Fugue

On Thursday, March 25, the Artnueve Gallery opens the exhibition “La Fuga Ebria” by the artist Pablo Capitán Del Río.

The variations throughout the room seem like phrasing, or rather babbling, in that “deafblind language of sculpture” of which Oteiza spoke. Eros moves. Eros is a verb.

Pablo Capitán presents a series of works that speak of the gaze and desire. They are pieces of resin, glass and iron burns, of materials that can act as transparency, hollow or reflection.

Pablo Capitán del Río has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the University of Granada in 2006 and a Master’s Degree in Artistic Production in the specialty of Artistic Practice from the Polytechnic University of Valencia in 2008.

In Pablo Capitán del Río’s work, precariousness appears not only in the use of materials – generally close to the universe of the povera – but also in the sense of the work as a composition always on the verge of collapse. His works, both his interventions that revolve around the recovery of natural processes, and his more objective installations and sculptures always present an imbalance that generates in the viewer an awareness that everything can change from one moment to another. Works that move, that initiate processes, that disturb the viewer’s gaze, but above all that transform their relationship with space and the environment. The constant decision-making regarding the way to face the work, to look at it, to move away from it so as not to be touched by it or not to destroy it, also implies a kind of “care” in perception, a look that intuits that what is It has not always been like this before him, and, of course, it will not remain in that state from now on, in such a way that a kind of urgency is transmitted when seeing and feeling.
