At the end of all human dreams there is nothing but dust, is a group show that sets up a dialogue between works by Núria Güell (Vidreres, 1981) & Levi Orta (La Habana, 1984) and Adelita Husni-Bey (Milan, 1985) under Juan Canela’s (Sevilla, 1980) curatorship. The projects, diverse in many ways but alike in their essence, meet under a common denominator: the will to challenge pre-established conventions suggesting different alternatives for the future.
The title of this exhibition was inspired by Federica Montseny (Madrid, 1905 – Toulouse, 1994). She was not only a syndicalist, anarchist and novelist, but also the first woman who served as a minister of Spain, within the framework of the II Republic. Montseny strongly believed that one of the best ways to communicate ideas and knowledge was through literature. That is why she always defended that, in relation to libertarian productions, aesthetics and ethics always pursued the same purpose. The same happens with these projects that distill a libertarian scent always seeking a complex balance placed in the problematic spot in which they manage to maintain a coherent and ethical attitude within the art world while fostering a firm political position. A series of artistic proposals arises then entailing an implication that goes beyond the aesthetic or intellectual, approaching the personal. Güell & Orta and Husni-Bey commit themselves to the issues they address to stir in the mud and change the surrounding reality.WEBwww.adngaleria.com
