Spanish Pavilion, 59th International Art Exhibition. La Biennale di Venezia
CORRECCIÓN by Ignasi Aballí
Giardini della Biennale, Venezia
April 23 – November 27, 2022

Corrección (Correction) is the proposal of Ignasi Aballí for the Spanish Pavilion in the Biennale di Venezia 2022, curated by Bea Espejo, and could be defined as a challenge, daring the viewer’s attention and perception. The project follows in the wake of other previous works in which the artist subtly creates a process that questions the exhibition space, be it by the walls of the museum being painted in different whites or imaginary walls being traced to divide the spaces a priori, indivisible.

From when he began to work in the eighties, Ignasi Aballí has proposed a conceptual reflection on the representation and perception of means such as paint, the object, photography, fiction, cinema or video. His work makes up and reorganizes texts, images, materials and processes, bringing many concepts into confrontation: presence and absence, material and immaterial, visible and invisible, transparency and opacity, appropriation and creation. This is how he relates the excess of images in our current society with the scarcity of meaning that may be attributed to them. In his proposal for the Spanish Pavilion are many of those themes that have accompanied his work: time and its imprint, the duplicity of naming and showing, absence and disappearance, the idea of wasting, error and correction or the limits of work material.

His projects change the view of familiar nature and send the viewer on an unusual voyage of discovery: With ALGA, Danish conceptual artist and documenta participant Tue Greenfort (1973) focuses on a group of organisms that defies clear biological systematics and classification and to which properties are attributed that could not be more contradictory: Algae can be poisonous and life-threatening, they are considered a superfood and possible remedy, their chemical similarity to petroleum components make them potential suppliers of biokerosene.
