Ivorypress presents On Reality, a joint exhibition by Cristina Iglesias and Thomas Struth that brings together the photography and sculpture of these two artists with an installation that has been specially created for the gallery’s space. Through the use of water and the different sculptural materials employed by Iglesias, her installations will be interspersed with Struth’s photographs in the space to create a reflection on reality, imagination and the way they are perceived by human beings.

Thomas Struth will show a selection of his latest works in which he explores human fantasy and the icons that make up our collective imagination: theme parks and different places where imagination is commercialised. Another of his photographic series turns the spotlight on companies and institutions that carry out scientific research and use digital technologies.

This analysis of reality and physical experience is also present in the work of Cristina Iglesias, who through sculptural fictions attempts to transport the audience to a different place in the imagination. In this way, her installation will restructure three areas of the gallery. Stainless steel, screens suspended from the ceiling and glass will be used to create new spaces through which water slowly meanders and in which the audience will find several wells; recurring elements in the artist’s recent work.

On Reality, which is part of the Festival Off PHotoEspaña, is Iglesias and Struth’s first joint exhibition, as well as the first time that the artists exhibit their work at Ivorypress.
