La Casa Encendida, Madrid


"We live in a world under constant media surveillance and control. Artists respond to this with ephemeral works which, by definition, cannot really be tracked. They use materials that are constantly evolving or have a limited lifespan. These highly disparate works, sometimes designed for a specific setting, are united by their interest in states of change: evolution, dissolution, memory, fragility and ageing"



Co-curated with Olivier Varenne, this exhibition brought together 14 artists from different countries and generations, the majority of whom designed site-specific pieces for La Casa Encendida exploring the ephemeral.
