MAY 2013. TEJEDURAS, BICHITOS Y LIBROS
Fundación Telefónica, Fundación Gego and Periférico Centro de Arte Contemporáneo presented this exhibition which, under the curatorship of Felix Suazo, was drawn from the works in custody at Fundación Gego and some private collections. It showed works from the initial and final periods of Gego’s artistic trajectory. The largest group within the exhibition included a selection of Tejeduras (Weavings) and Bichitos (Little beasts) dated 1987 to 1992 which had been exhibited at the 30th Sao Paulo Biennale in 2012 under the curatorship of Luis Enrique Pérez Oramas. Some Libros (Books) of engravings in lithography, etching and intaglio made between 1961 and 1967 were also exhibited.
Tejeduras, Bichitos and Libros are three clearly defined groups of works from the plastic, conceptual and temporal points of view. They are brought together by the central core of the line, either alone or multiplied, printed or three-dimensional, but always as a substantial and structural element, dependent neither on form nor on volume. These qualities, together with the austerity in the composition of the works and the modest delicacy of the materials used, propose a dialogue between geometry and two- as well as three-dimensional space.
