Jose Iglesias Gª. Arenal offers an investigation into the role of social networks, Facebook, in this case, in our lives. The artist creates a file that consists of a set of information and conversation regarding your personal profile leaving them available to the public for consultation: a kind of large data librarie that are impossible to read due to the huge amount with a identity as hypertext.
The enormity of the work reveals a new way of looking at the text as distant communication literature and closer to the use of the image. The voyeurism of the viewer, in this case becomes legitimate, guaranteed by the author's desire to show his statement to the public.
Jose Iglesias Gª-Arenal (Madrid, 1991), artist and curator, graduated in Fine Arts at the University of Seville. During his training he attended classes with artist Isidoro Valcárcel Medina, Margarita de Aizpuru curator, artist and cultural manager Rubén Barroso; (Art International and Human Rights Meeting in Wester Sahara, 2012) ARTifariti and Erasmus scholarship at the Academy of Fine Arts in Perugia. It delves into the performance, conceptual art and relationships, creating installations, creating space and attitudes to reflect the emotions, the connection points and language codes, all heavily inspired by the philosophy of Beatriz Preciado. Curator: Carla Capodimonti. (Galleria Cinica press-release)
