About Gallery

etHALL has a stable programme since 2011 in which includes the works by both consolidated artists (Sergio Prego, Itziar Okariz, Manuel Saiz) and others at the beginning of their careers (Jan Monclús, Josu Bilbao, Martín Vitaliti). The work that it develops is distinguished by maintaining a close collaboration with the artists, making possible the elaboration and presentation of their most committed proposals. The new gallery space in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat emphasizes the experimental nature of the exhibition projects.

Expo Deaden the deadened

From Thu. 17th to Sat. 19th Sept. / 10 am - 8 pm
Sun. 20th Sept. / 10 am - 3 pm

It seems that the zenith gaze is the most powerful because from up there the ground is controlled. We say we have our feet on the ground as a sign of stability and sanity. We cling by gravity to the surface and under it we place the insurmountable, the infra-objects: the mines, the dead, the sewer, the societies that had already been and the imaginary of the underworld. The resistance to coming into contact with this lower-realm leads us to build an apparatus of distance and prejudice traceable in the linguistics and material history of soils.

What happens if we stop associating progress with growth and failure to bottoming out? Why don't we talk about “overcontracts” but about overproduction? Why does the word "deaden" come from death if it has to stop the blow? Over-sub, over-sub, over-sub. Deaden the deadened crosses back and forth the ground line to disarray it.
