‘Under the Surface (Fear, Monsters, Shadows)’ at Conde Duque Cultural Centre

Dec 11 2020 - Apr 11 2021

Marco Godoy and Bernardí Roig participate in this group exhibition at Sala de Bóvedas in Conde Duque Cultural Centre, Madrid.

The global health crisis has led to a generalized existential crisis that forces us to reflect and doubt our own position in the world and particularly in the society in which we live. Critical thinking generates doubts and questions necessary to advance as individuals in the search for answers. But that questioning can lead to internal conflicts. Looking at reality head on is not always pleasant, it is more comfortable to look at it out of the corner of the eye and quickly look away if something disturbs us. Confronting reality is complicated because it brings out emotions that are normally hidden.

Fears, monsters and shadows that hide under the surface, and curiously never disappear even if they are looked at from the side. As much as we bury them, they are always there, and can become a heavy burden.

Guilt, fear of ourselves, fear of being afraid.

Perhaps it is time to face the present and try to make visible those hidden, invisible or falsely forgotten feelings, which are much more common than we suspect.

The exhibition will feature a publication designed by Jaime Narváez that will include texts by different authors such as the art critic Bea Espejo, the writer Agustín Fernández Mallo and the professor at the Complutense University of Madrid Marián López Fdez. Cao, director of the EARTDI research group.
