Animal que no existeix wanders through Daniel Steegmann Mangrané‘s (b.1977, Barcelona) exhibition, developing in it, as a process of exchange and operations of transformation.
It is made up of relations between subjects (entities) and exchanges of perspectives which engage the viewer in visualizing the potential for transformation of the phenomena perceived. Animal que no existeix spatializes viewpoints in the exhibition, and by being one with it, the viewer tries to adopt them … these viewpoints. Animal que no existeix may (at times simultaneously) use drawing, collage, cut-outs, film, and installation, and develop organically to achieve the right level of abstraction allowing it to migrate from one piece to the other.
Crac Alsace presents the first solo exhibition by Daniel Steegmann Mangrané in France.
Steegmann Mangrané practice covers various media and oscillates between subtle, poetic but however raw experimentations that question the relationship between language and world.His practice covers various media and oscillates between subtle, poetic but however crude experimentations that question the relationship between world and language. Although mainly conceptually informed, his installations engage the imagination of the spectator and display a strong concern with the existence and features of concrete objects: Steegmann activates the abstract language as a thought-generating principle and articulating unstable meaning.
