The exhibition brings together recent and late works by the Mallorcan artist. In his constant exploration, Nadal proposes cartographies without beginning or end that place the spectator in front of the abyss. Travelling is the common thread connecting these pieces that represent experimental places of transition. Travelling, as an experience and as a metaphor, supposes a trace that connects with memory; a sediment that invites introspection. Thus the canvases, the tables and the papers that are shown constitute unique elements of a labyrinth through which to enter.
In the works exhibited Guillem Nadal attends to the signals that Kavafis offered in the poem “Ithaca” and hopes “the road is a long one.”
