Oriol Vilapuig. Son. Imprints and figurations in Valls d’Àneu
Time Out says
Catalan artist Oriol Vilapuig works with imagery that focuses on baptismal and oil fonts, which are typically found in the Àneu valleys area in the territory of Pallars Sobirà, where Vilapuig often creates. Shapes of nature, fissures, centuries-old marks, pebbly ground, animal footprints... they all appear using the frottage, or 'rubbing', technique, a procedure that allows the images to appear by contact. All these forms are presented in a space built especially for this show inside the MNAC's Romanesque rooms. This artistic intervention establishes a dialogue with a visual assembly of projected images from archives and publications in different fields, an inaccessible visual atlas that dilutes or reinforces what takes place 'between images'.
