Liquid Memories

 

2019-09-12 - 2020-01-06

Curator: Lola Durán

 

 

Daniel Canogar's work reflects on memory and the loss of memory. Through his projects he seeks to prevent the forgetting and disappearance of memories as a result of information overload.

 

In addressing the theme, he takes several different approaches: from a remembrance of the former life of certain disused technological items and materials to an interest in digitally compiling and transforming the changes that affect today's developed societies.

 

In this exhibition, entitled Memorias líquidas [Liquid Memories], he reflects on processes for not losing memory, on the awareness of loss.

 

An important part of the discourse centres on the constant and unassumable data flow that bombards us in our everyday lives. Using a technological process, Canogar collates and projects the data in the form of abstract generative animations, which are very revealing in plastic terms and are characterised by the poetic value they convey.
