Bernardi Roig at Es Baluard Museu, Palma, Spain

This exhibition aims to analyse and review the complex universe of Majorcan artist Bernardi Roig based on the presentation and decoding of his audiovisual work. The pieces are installed in an exciting scenic arrangement, emphasising the initiatory journey between appropriation and recreation of his images and visual constructions.

I am interested in the Baroque and its scenographic dimension. I am constantly accused of being excessive and obsessive because I approach the image as a condensation of unspoken experience. It is this disorderly convulsion that possibly leads me to exaggeration.

- Bernardi Roig

These works tell us about an insatiable and nonsensical sisyphic absurd where the solitary figures of each of the videos act, caught in the repetition of gestures, in a sameness spiral. Either carrying a lamp on his back, sewing his mouth forever, spinning with a spotlight on his head without being able to get out of the claustrophobic spaces of rationalism, climbing a mountain constantly to never reach the ruins of the language philosopher’s cottage, or trapped between laughter and the aphonia of mute insults.
