Intro
La exposición recoge una parte de su trabajo en cerámica y dibujos sobre papel, donde una vez más pone el punto de atención sobre la ciudad y su simbología. Narraciones sobre una ciudad saturada, controlada, anestesiada, caótica y amenazante que envuelve a personajes aislados y perdidos en una maraña de caminos sin destino concreto.
 

Artist list

Xavier Monsalvatje
Estructuras reflejadas, en azul de cobalto o pigmento negro sobre pasta blanca, delimitan un espacio concreto pero inabarcable, la urbe como elemento perturbador y reflejo de la sociedad que la ha procreado, planimetría indefinida, siempre al servicio de un Poder que no la habita, que permanece oculto tras las pantallas vibrantes sobre edificios impersonales.
Quizás únicamente, la imagen de un faro centelleante, intenta, a modo de baliza, marcar una ruta alentadora dentro de esta topografía del caos.
 
El trabajo de Monsalvatje (Godella 1965), circunda entre el mundo onírico de Italo Calvino o el misterio de Piranesi, los grafismos de Keith Haring y la visión critica de Charles Krafft, siempre dentro de lo que al artista ha obsesionado a lo largo de su trayectoria artística, la industria, la ciudad y los sistemas de control que el Poder ejerce sobre la ciudadanía.
