Richard T. Walker

in accordance with things

PRESS RELEASE: ENG | CAST | CAT

[ENG] It's a matter of scale. Each stone is a potential mountain, as suggested by Roger Caillois. In accordance with things, solo show by Richard T. Walker in àngels barcelona, implies a new activation of the landscape through the simple and magnificent  importance of the stone. This is a correlation between videos, photographs, sculptures and sound pieces where the perception of wilderness - or at least, of that which is not domesticated - depends on the multiple functions and symbols that the English artist gives to the stone. Sometimes a mere object, sometimes a performative medium, sometimes a whole landscape.

[CAST] Es cuestión de escala. Toda piedra es montaña en potencia, sugiere Roger Caillois. In accordance with things, exposición individual de Richard T. Walker para àngels barcelona, supone una nueva activación del paisaje mediante el protagonismo simple y magnífico de la piedra. Un ejercicio de concordancia entre videos, fotografías, esculturas y piezas sonoras donde la percepción del territorio salvaje – o al menos no domesticado – depende de las múltiples funciones y simbologías que el artista inglés otorga a la piedra. A veces un mero objeto, a veces un medio performativo, a veces un paisaje en su totalidad.

[CAT] És una qüestió d'escala. Tota pedra és una muntanya en potencia com suggereix Roger Caillois. In accordance with things, exposició individual de Richard T. Walker per àngels barcelona, suposa una nova activació del paisatge mitjançant el protagonisme simple i magnífic de la pedra. Un exercici de concordança entre vídeos, fotografies, escultures i peces sonores on la percepció del territori salvatge - o almenys no domesticat - depèn de les múltiples funcions i simbologies que l'artista anglès atorga a la pedra. A vegades un simple objecte, a vegades un mitjà performatiu, a vegades un paisatge en la seva totalitat.
