Olmo. Jorge Peris
Luis Adelantado Valencia is pleased to present Valencian artist Jorge Peris’s second exhibition at our gallery; Olmo 2017.
Jorge has put forward two installations that complement each other conceptually, like two sides of the same coin. They start from a common point, an axis marked by the golden ratio’s representation, piercing the top two floors of the gallery and outlining a series of connection which draw a sequence, a coherence, a logic.
In the installation titled Olmo, salt conducts energy and life and is a reference to the very origins, a sea that accompanies an indelible memory, a defining presence in his work. Jorge sketches paths through which salt runs, drawing up a sequence that measures the universe, from the monumental to the minute.
In relation to all the tensions generated in Olmo, we also find an Italian art nouveau staircase that expands its steps in one of the rooms of our gallery, constructing a genuine forged iron fortress, with impossible cantilevers and a balancing game that refers us to the poetics of the spiral, present throughout the Olmo 2017 project.
