Finestra (Window) (2005)
Aballí, Ignasi

collection MACBA, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Barcelona, Barcelona, España

Ignasi Aballí considers this work like the growth of a tree, where themes and categories are in close relationship to each other. With slow and meditated elaborations, the evolution of his work begins with methodological preoccupations about vision, visibility and materials that have a realistic character, in the sense that the works include elements directly from daily life.

The record of the passing of time is the main subject of the work of Aballí. The works materialize with the exposure of objects to sunlight and the accumulation of dust over time; thereafter the objects are removed leaving a negative space as a reminder of their existence.
