As every year, this fourth edition of the program Conexiones uses as a starting point two works of art that belong to the collections Colección Banco Santander and Colección ABC, our program Conexiones offer drawing artists to carry out an exhibition in our Museum. They face the challenge based on their choice and with absolute creative freedom to reveal the connections that give name to the project.
Juan López (Cantabria, 1979) designs the exhibition space by using a trompe l’oeil technique, take-out walls, rising floors structures that are altered… The exhibition metaphorically describes the effects of an hypothetical cannon shot that crosses the room and impacts inside, changing the appearance of the room and the perception that the visitor has of the traditional museum halls. Juan López edits the book so he can be able to redraw the blank pages as he did with the walls. He recreates the same illusions by punching and cutting the pages, and the result its binding and cutting is meant to be done in the traditional way.
