At first sight

In his practice, Oriol Vilanova (°1980, Spain) investigates the characteristics of men and cultures. This investigation is also key in an extensive collection of postcards he has been collecting for years on flea markets and that he regularly uses as a starting point of his works. Chance, repetition and exaggeration often return in his minimal installations, performances and texts. In M Vilanova focuses on the act of exhibiting. He explores how museums show artifacts in images on postcards or through exhibition devices such as showcases and plinths. What stories do they tell? And does this also create at the same time a certain distance towards an audience?
