I happened upon Spanish artist Gabriel Pericàs’ website and found myself smiling at most everything; from his loopable gifs down to his cute humorous notes to the site visitor. This series of photos titled Cuñas (doorstops/door wedges in Spanish) was no exception.
Pericàs lives and works in Barcelona. He is currently working on an upcoming solo exhibition at Espai 13 titled The Nipple Slip Speech Performance. Here’s the description:
The Nipple Slip Speech Performance is developed as a speculative narrative that aims to explore the concept of distraction and, in a wider sense, our inability, sometimes, to keep a focused attention. It implies turning whatever is trivial, irrelevant, or plainly incidental, into high-ranked information, thus, canceling the importance accrued by any other message.
Through a fragmented narrative that follows the latest mass media hype of Nipple Slip phenomena, Gabriel Pericàs chooses to analyze different aspects related to absent-mindedness and mental lapse. This journey takes him progressively to accident and mishap, and shapes the collection of small sculptures, photographs and videos that are scattered across the exhibition space.
See what I mean?
