“This exhibition makes clear that contemporary art requires the spectator to undertake work that has long ceased to be merely visual and is also not limited to the physical or experiential. Current artistic practices require an arduous exercise to be carried out that involves a series of specialised representational tools and a period of time in which to construct the corresponding mechanisms of analysis. Although artists are aware of these questions, they are ultimately questions of a critical and meta-critical nature that should not disturb or alter the result of the artistic work. They can therefore be considered as themes which exist in parallel to the production of the works and which were deliberately not broached in the conversation.“
