  • About the artwork

    The visible constructs the form, the invisible gives it value. Tao Te King

    Photographs of the invisible moves on the border between the concrete world and the ambit of the mysterious. Its images allude to the intangible, to that dimension of existence that is beyond the visible, beyond the apparent, unattainable by thought. It seeks to tune into silence, with the mystery that hides behind the superficial layer of the reality.

    Emptied images, stripped of any references to the ‘real’, to that ‘world’ that we believe we can recognize and name, that show us a world of uncertain appearance, a world to be known, to signify, open to endless interpretations. Quiet and silent presences that contain, below their solid and immobile external form, an energy field that gives them dynamism, movement. Forms that allude to the organic, to that indivisible whole that is the Universe, in which everything is interconnected and nothing exists in an isolated way. Essential forms that embrace the abstract, the symbolic, that deal with the transience, the impermanence of all forms, and at the same time, the permanent, the eternal.

    The gaze, with hardly any support points to hold on, turns on itself, seeking a more intuitive perception, less mediated by the word. A quiet and attentive perception that leads us, ultimately, to become more aware of our own presence.

    Photographs of the invisible confronts us with the opacity of appearances, and at the same time with the ambiguous, elusive nature of photography, and the fragile, precarious relationship that it maintains with the real. It questions thus, not only the transparency and literalness of the appearance of the world, but also that of the photograph itself.

Patricia Bofill

Born in: 1973 Spain
Translation in progress

I always liked the painting. I studied Fine Arts, it was there where I discovered photography, black and white, classics. I decided to start my author project some years after graduating. Since then I have supplemented my training with workshops and specialized courses. I remember with special interest those of Alejandro Castellote, David Jiménez and Juanan Requena. In 2017 I was awarded the 'Argi Arantzazu' prize, thanks to which I celebrated my first solo exhibition with the work 'Photographs of the invisible' within the context of the ARGI festival, at the Gandiaga Center in Arantzazu, Guipúzcoa. I have participated in various group exhibitions inside and outside the territory, and my work has been recognized in national and international competitions such as Nexofoto, Begira Photo, ARGI Arantzazu, BIPA Barcelona International Photography Award, Lens Culture Emergent Talent or Caixa Terrassa Awards.

I understand my work as a long-term project, open, in continuous evolution. All search, all confrontation with the outside is directed towards the interior of oneself. Photography is for me a means of questioning, a pretext to ask ourselves who we are, to pay attention, to explore our relationship with the world, to connect with our essential and intimate being. My work interrogates the visible, deals with the ambiguous nature of photography and the fragile relationship that it maintains with the real. Look for a more intuitive perception, less mediated by the word. A quiet and attentive perception that leads us, ultimately, to become more aware of our own presence.
