Historic symbols form new exhibition
These unusual symbols hold special memories for a Spanish artist who has
opened a new exhibition in La Laguna.
Pol Masip reflects on the past and his memory as part of Fotonoviembre 2019 with his show “104 viviendas” (“104 houses”). It is taking place in the TEA Las Catalinas Centre until January 12th.
The symbols were captured on the facade of houses constructed during the Franco regime but in many cases were deleted after his fall. In others, however, the chisel scar remains, providing a glimpse of history.
Pol Masip (La Secuita, 1993) was trained as a photographer at the Escola d’Art i Disseny in Tarragona and as an art historian at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili. So far, his work has focused on exploring the political dimension of architecture, the urban landscape and public space and he has won several awards.
His work was chosen to be part of Artists in Selection along with that of Maja Daniels, Lola Lasurt, Antonio Menchen and Belén Cerezo.
The exhibition can be seen from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 6pm.
