  • About the artwork

    The Gravity of Place is a project made during an artist’s residency at Domaine de Kerguéhennec in Brittany. Kerguéhennec is a contemporary art centre that has over thirty sculptures installed in its surrounding landscape. The place, where other artists have previously left their mark, is charged with memory and meaning.

    The series explores the concept of ‘place’ as the essence of emotional connection through darkness, the limits of what is representable and the perception of reality. Night appears as an object of discovery, mystery and pleasure, a hieroglyphic space that leads us to imagine something more that what we are actually seeing. We enter the terrain of the mind, the imperceptible, chance findings. In short, this proposal is sensorial rather than rational, filled with intangible elements that gradually appear and disappear as the pages are turned.

Translation in progress

Israel Ariño (Barcelona, 1974)

After graduating in Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona, between 1992 and 1998 Ariño trained in photography at different schools. In 2001 he became a professional photographer, and since then divides his time between teaching, working as a publisher at Ediciones Anómalas and creating his own art works. His works can be found in numerous private and public collections.

From 2001, he started to exhibit his work regulary in Spain and France. Some of his notable works are: Le temps éparpillé 1995-2015 at l'Imagerie de Lannion, Le nom qui efface la couleur (2013) at the Moulin de la Filature, (Le Blanc, France), Atles i altres cartografies (2013) at Tagomago Gallery (Barcelona), L'explorateur et les caprices du hasard (2012) at Carré Amelot (La Rochelle, France), Crónicas de un desembarco (2010) at Festival Mapamundistas (Pamplona, Spain) or Espacio Imaginario (2008) at the 6ème Biennale de photographie et des arts de Liège (Liège, Belgium).? He was invited by differents artist residencies such as: Résidence 1+2 (Toulouse, 2017), Domaine de Kerguéhennec (France, 2016), Aparté lieu d'art contemporain (Iffendic, France, 2012), Carré d'art de Chartres Bretagne for the project Territoires d'expériences (France, 2012), Centre Culturel Colombier de Rennes for the project Cámara Obscura (Rennes, France, 2011), British Museum of London for the project Apollo Epikouros (London, 2009) or the Artothèque de Vitré (France, 2009).

In 2006, he started to publish his own artist books: Chambre avec vue (2006), Otras canciones a Guiomar (2008), Anatomía de una desaparición (2009) which allowed him to express different narratives in a new form. In 2012, his book Atlas, which was published by Ediciones Anómalas, was selected for the exhibition Books that are photos, photos that are books at the Museo de Arte Reina Sofía of Madrid. In 2017, his book The gravity of place received the Arts Libris Award by the Banc de Sabadell Foundation.
