ATLAS — Marta Ribas first solo exhibition
Very happy to announce and present ATLAS, my first solo exhibition at The Gam
Come join for the opening on Thursday June 14th.
The show will be up until June 20th.
Two years ago I unfolded a map and travelled many miles to the west of the globe. I was going from Spain to this country, Canada. I arrived to a land of which I had no geographical reference but shortly afterwards, I came to this realization:
«I love the feeling of not knowing where I am. I love the sensation of being in a random coordinate of this world. I like the Earth to be round and to have no beginning or end.»
The exhibition ATLAS was born from these thoughts.
ATLAS is a compilation of imaginary maps created under a view of infinity and randomness.
Through abstract paintings and collages, ATLAS calls for reflection on the geographic space and our physical positions within the planet. It brings together unknown landscapes that trace, erase, overlap and blur the many borders and boundaries between mountains, oceans and land. They serve to remind us that these undefined lines bring us together rather than break us apart.
