Conversation on the occasion of the opening of the exhibition ‘An exercise in violence’, between the artist Guillermo Ros and Nuria Enguita, curator of the exhibition and director of IVAM.
The entrance to this exhibition is the entrance to the imaginary of Guillermo Ros, of his way of seeing and understanding the art world, of his peculiar analysis of the context in which he (over)lives and works. The room presents an imposed route: the viewer must start his visit on the first floor and climb the stairs to continue on an upper floor. As if it were a video game, we find frozen scenes on two levels, two different environments in which the struggle takes place.
Without a doubt, Gallery 6 of the IVAM is an architecturally complicated room: low ceilings, columns and various imposed elements. But Guillermo Ros has come precisely to fight against these. In this conversation Guillermo Ros will share his initial research, as well as the work processes with which he has faced the museum project.
