Mario Santamaría at the axhibition Species of Spaces at MACBA

Conceived as a spatially fragmented building according to the typology established by Perec in his book Species of Spaces, the exhibition features a selection of works chosen by their capacity to refer to the areas in which we act, exist, move, think and live. That is, a series of spaces that, seen through the eyes of an artist, bring us close to the meaning they may have for us through specific productions, through works in the Collection, or through other works that, for a variety of reasons, appear to us as the ideal counterpoint for forcing the imagination to seek the best way of defining the use we make of them.

More than an exhibition with a thesis, archive or documentation, our proposal for Species of Spaces should be understood as a free interpretation of a book set adrift around some corners of the public and private space, intimacy and social life, what we are and what others see in us. In other words, like human existence itself, it drifts from the minimal and limited space of a page to the impossibility of setting limits to the idea of space in general.
