Luis Adelantado is pleased to present Mulholland Drive, a project by artist Alex Marco which interweaves audiovisual language with visual images in a very innovative way as a result of his direct experience with the environment.

This exhibition covers the four floors of the gallery, forming a route along which we must proceed blindly, following the spatial logic of the marks scattered on the surfaces.  As if it were an archelogical dig, the viewer must glide between fossils of motions and emotions which comprise the show, marks on the cracked tarmac of a road, tar and skateboard skids produced by contact with the surface of the canvas all perform as if they were embodied shadows, making visible the intent which is hidden in each gesture, like a footprint where time is imprinted by the contact that the image provokes.

This tactile reading of the surfaces transforms the floor, canvas and screen into a constant exploration where the act of painting becomes the principal driving force as if it were supplying a certain order.  That said, the images form inscriptions to the same degree of language in which the accumulated grime, flaws and paint marks, serve to consolidate the complex memory process which is hidden in every gesture.
