Artists Showroom » Icaro´s labyrinth

Javier Aranguren

This exhibition features Javier Aranguren´s last prints. These pieces, with different size between 15x15cm and 225x225cm, are made in black and white colours and illuminated by hand. For him every detail is as important as the whole piece in these works.

The infinite labyrinth as a finite thing represents the subject of this exhibition.

Aranguren uses labyrinth as a metaphor of our lives with a beginning, a route to follow where often we have many doubts about the next steps. In this route, as well as inside a labyrinth, we have to choose if we wish to follow, stop, or dodge obstacles, in order to arrive to our unexpected the end.

What do we have to expect at the end of it, the fearsome Minotaur? Ariadna with her thread? A gothic cathedral? A game of chance? A house with a subprime mortgage? Paradise? Nothing?

As well as Icaro we failed in our attempts to understand this labyrinth, this complex situation. After failing, getting sick, we try it again.

The Icaro´s movement wings represents our encouragement which makes us to keep on searching, doing, imagining, enjoying, suffering, winning or losing. In fact, living.
