Galeria Elba Benitez

Some galleries specialize in one thing. Galería Elba Benítez believes in everything. Because everything is expression. If you experience it and it moves you. Spain is lucky enough to have such a staunch supporter of those who make the internal experience of being human into something to be shared. PotatoMike is grateful.
Madrid, SPAIN


Since 1990, Galería Elba Benítez has freely embraced the diverse and ever-changing facets of contemporary art. The gallery exhibits artists working with a wide range of media – installation, sculpture, video, photography, painting, performance, collective action – while also striving to explore channels of artistic expression formed by the interplay of art with other disciplines, such as architecture, film, tourism, urbanism and the production of projects for public spaces. Above all, Galería Elba Benítez remains committed to art's fluid capacity to change with changing times.

GINTARAS DIDŽIAPETRIS
Miegamajame
June 7th to July 15th, 2017

Gintaras Didžiapetris (1985) is one of the most distinctive representatives of the younger generation of artists emerging on the international scene, who not only creates art but also writes about it. His work is more related to the search for thought processes and compositions than to representation. The works stemming from art research can assume many forms – photography, drawing, line, object, film, text, sound, etc. – in which knowledge, intuition and creativity are intertwined in a deep layer of mental geometry. When thinking about the complexity of his work (and, at the same time, its simplicity), we could say metaphorically that Didžiapetris invents the microcosms which are characterised by their own logic and which exist independently of the artist and the perceiver.

Works by Didžiapetris have been exhibited in many important group shows in Europe, the United States and Canada. He participated in ILLUMInations at the 54th Venice Biennale. Solo exhibitions of his work have taken place at several institutions, such as the Contemporary Art Centre (Vilnius), Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Villa Croce (Genoa), Salzburger Kunstverein (Salzburg), the Elba Benítez Gallery (Madrid), and Tulips & Roses (Brussels). Gintaras Didžiapetris has been a resident artist at the Palais de Tokyo/Le Pavillon (Paris, 2010–2011) and Fondazione Morra Greco (Naples, 2010).

Born in 1961 in São Paulo, Brazil.
Lives and works between New York, USA and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Vik Muniz creates meticulously crafted visual puns and games, delighting viewers while at the same time raising more thoughtful questions about the nature and mechanics of illusion and repre­sentation. Muniz draws with unusual materials such as chocolate, ash, dirt, or bits of paper, creating trompe l'oeil renderings (often of iconic artworks and culturally resonant imagery) which he later photographs into his own, final art work. Muniz’s highly-constructed works thus are not only ‘legible’ on various levels but also call attention to their own legibility, conveying an image without concealing the language – or rather, the linguistics -- of the image conveyed. As Muniz himself has said: “When people look at one of my pictures, I don’t want them to actually see something represented. I prefer for them to see how something gets to represent something else.
