Exhibition "BENDITA INOCENCIA d' Antonio Luque" at Catalunya campus CRAI

From to

Catalunya campus CRAI

Antonio Luque's exhibition, which can be visited until April 14 in the different spaces of the CRAI on the Catalunya campus, helps to show that all representations of reality hide games, subjective ways of observing or narrative archetypes and that it is the texts that determine what we see in the images.

"Blessed Inocencia" collects five photographs of different anonymous men - from a list of nearly 60 -, which are accompanied by more or less well-known names, such as Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon; Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft; Amancio Ortega, founder of Inditex, Ma Huateng, founder, president and CEO of Tencet, a company dedicated to technology and the Internet, which brings together the largest gaming and entertainment groups in the world or Alice Walton, the only one on the list, heiress of the fortune of the founder of Wal-Mart, the world's largest retail company.

Anotnio Luque is a searcher of lost images in old bookstores and second-hand tracks. He hunts down photo archives of anonymous people, from closed studios and memory dumps. With them he creates fictional worlds or viral narratives inspired by the faces, environments and poses of the people photographed and turns them into actors in his projects. He is not interested in what they were, but in what they can become.

The images of these young men rescued from the archive of a neighborhood photographer act as a representation of each of the names of the successful and millionaire heroes.
