Pigment Gallery was launched in Barcelona in January 2016 with the aim of adapting interactively to the changing global society in order to ensure contemporary art reaches anyone with curiosity or sensitivity towards art.
Pigment Gallery deals in the promoting and publicising of contemporary art, within new artists from both home and abroad, and to present their works both nationally and internationally, especially at the main contemporary art fairs held around the world. The gallery supports a take on reality and current trends that fees from modes and cliches, in search for new voices that provide a fresh breeze to the art world. Discovering, sharing, investing and generating discussion spaces rather than merely exhibiting.
Pigment Gallery's 'Anthropocene' exhibition for Barcelona Gallery Weekend 2020 will be held at Montoya.
From Thu. 17th to Sat. 19th Sept. / 10 am - 8 pm
Sun. 20th Sept. / 10 am - 3 pm
Three distinct bodies of work
investigate and express our relationship with nature, in particular the
ambivalence and ambiguity of living in the Anthropocene. The Anthropocene has
been defined as, variously, a historical epoch, an update of the Romantic
sublime, a scientific reality, a political, economic and moral issue.
Drawing on the disciplines of video, fine art photography and painting, three contemporary artists working on the global stage interrogate the relationship between the human and not-human realms. What unites them is a conceptual and practical interest in boundaries. Diego Ferrari draws literal lines on the land; Rubén Martín de Lucas constructs 'Minimal Republics'; Rosa Galindo creates giant impressionist canvases whose materials belie their pastoral impression. Feints, trompe l'oeils, games, experiments - the artists take a sly, playful approach which draws the viewer into the conundrum of the Antropocene: we are the architects of it, and simultaneously the perpetrators and the victims of a great crime - against nature, the planet, the future. As with all paradigmatic shifts, it is hard to confront the Anthropocene head on. In this exhibition the artists each take their own oblique approach to the issue of how we live with and confront our on-going destruction of nature, while challenging the viewer to construct their own version and veracity of the works on display.

Diego Ferrari is an artist and photographer with over 21 years' experience in exhibitions, residencies and lecturing on his projects around the world. His practice interrogates the relationship between social values and public spaces, with a particular interest in the relationship between the body and its environment, articulating modes of individual and collective experiences and social relations.
Rosa Galindo (Barcelona, 1962) began her artistic career 20 years ago, as a result of her education in art and design in Milan, Bologna and Barcelona, with the need to express her inner world artistically.
Throughout her artistic career, Galindo has used various techniques such as collage, oils, mobiles, and she is particularly renowned for her reverse painting on methacrylate. Her works are present in private collections such as the Vila Casas Foundation.
From a committed and critical discourse, Martín de Lucas (Madrid, 1977) invites us to reconsider our relationship with the territory through projects that approach issues such as the gradual reduction of space for wildlife, overpopulation, the artificial nature of borders, the liquid nature of the concept of nation or the dichotomy between industrial agriculture and natural agriculture.
