Tres galerías barcelonesas anuncian una colaboración veraniega especial
Ester Partegàs’ work seeks, discovers and produces questions about worth, loss and indifference in the generic objects and spaces that we consume. With a varied formal vocabulary that incorporates sculpture, photography, drawing and painting, Partegàs explores our ways of seeing and establishing relationships with our immediate material world.
Since her first exhibitions in the late nineties, Partegàs has developed a theme that explores the urban landscape of the consumer society. Through her pieces, the artist expresses her interest in the power of the word and its confrontation with the realm of the image. In this way, Partegàs focuses her work on ubiquitous objects and spaces that are part of our daily lives. Thus, residues resulting from our everyday interactions —plastic bags, food packaging, supermarket tickets...— are employed by the artist to explore a dynamic and unstable space that simultaneously enjoys and laments the engagements of contemporary culture.

“The press is a watchdog. Not a lapdog. A watchdog. Now, a watchdog can’t be right all the time. He doesn’t bark only when he sees or smells something that’s dangerous. A good watchdog barks at things that are suspicious.” -Dan Rather (American journalist and a former anchor for CBS Evening News)Discover
