The artist’s book "The Social Life of Ghosts" by Marria Pratts features more than one hundred drawings. With this repertoire, Marria appears to uphold the relevancy of drawing. And despite, or indeed thanks to, its modesty and the simplicity of its execution, reasons for which it is often not a respected medium, Marria rejects such market categorizations. 


These works are not minor nor are they preparatory. Neither are they so as standalone pieces, nor are they so as the sequential narrative they form after being selected, organised and presented as a collection in this publication. In the same way she does in her huge paintings or neon brushes, Marria once again demonstrates a willful and affectionate pursuit of insistency, never-ending purpose and an opening up of the world. In both form and content, the artist gifts us a unique reflection of the radical experience of liminality and alienation that still surrounds us and that is so lonely and, at the same time, so collective.

PROGRESSO ARCHIVE – 002


Adrià Cañameras has transformed a moment of artistic disorientation (as he himself states) into an opportunity to explore the possibilities presented by the interaction between a limited series of chemicals and Fujifilm's FP-100 photographic paper.

The work is limited in terms of the materials used (bleach, turpentine, citrus), but also in terms of the number of tests possible, limited to a batch of 20 packs of 10 films, and that are now out of stock commercially. This limitation is not a shortcoming, but rather serves to make the artist's project more concise. Two of the pieces have been lost, therefore the work collected here actually consists of 197 + 3 abstract landscapes. Unfinished, the series of compositions first of all shows the productive nature of repetition. Despite variations, repetition of the same technique is not redundant, but instead progressively traces the outlines of a landscape of undecided dimensions.
