Organised in a non-linear and non-chronological manner, this large collective exhibition reflects on Op Art and Kinetic Art as trends embraced by artists who worked in varying times, places and contexts. What the protagonists of these two movements had in common is a profound interest to stimulate the eye and the perceptions of the spectator, moving art in a new aesthetic and conceptual direction. The works on display bear witness to the wealth of content and approaches. The environment piece on the floor with its psychedelic lines and nuances by Jim Lambie launches the spectator into a dimension where the room that hosts the installation seems to expand or contract according to the given point of view and angle. Débricollage, the three-dimensional collage comprised of various types of tools of Jean Tinguely, is harmonious in its cacophony of forms, sounds, colours, materials and functions, all set together in a surreal manner. The principles of geometry, movement and perception are investigated in the work Supernovae by Hungary’s Victor Vasarely - a black and white painting made up of 1.161 black squares placed within a white grid, creating optical illusions and sensorial derailments.
The artist creates new paths within a visual language endowed with a powerful tactile quality.
