This is one of the categories that distinguish the entries in this blog, and tells the Story of Vantag as an art gallery
. In this one we are telling you about future projects and so it says "next" instead of saying Vantag 8 or Vantag 9.
Marga's original title is "PROYECTO. Días de Desasosiego" that I translated to "days of unrest"... see the text below.
Marga wanted me to remind you that, with the exception of #12 (to be seen in a future post), all the other photos presented here are still montages and not direct photos of the finished work. She is a sculptress and these are threedimmensional works.

PROJECT: Days of unrest
In this project I give priority to its narrative rather than to its constructive aspects, which were so present in the rest of my artistic production.
“Days of Unrest” (or Restlessness) is the result of a reflexion about living and the assimilation of our surroundings. This happened after I suffered a deep personal crisis that led me to the need to try and rebuild my broken identity and create another place where I could live.
In all the pieces that form this project there is a photographic image of my own full body or parts of it, stressing the tension between the perceived image and the monochromatic surface.
All the photographs within the project were done in black and white because they were the most trustworthy for the proposed narrative.
From the dozen pieces that constitute this project, nine are formed by two or three different volumes. In one of those volumes there is the photograph, while the others are monochromatic surfaces lacquered in black or white or red. In three of the pieces (#8, #9 and #12) there is a methacrylate board where my intervention is of a gestural nature.
The predominance of formal simplicity is evident in all the pieces with the exception of #12, where I introduce a rather chaotic network of ropes.
This project was sponsored in 2001 by Fundación Arte y Derecho (Spain) within “Propuestas: V convocatoria de Ayudas a la Creación Visual”.
