JAVIER VIVER “The Archive of the Unclassifiable”
31st May – 28th July 2018

Opening: Thursday 31st at 8.00 pm

“Under the title of “The Archive of the Unclassifiable” the author shows a selection of photographs from the “Iconographie de La Salpêtrière” filed in a modular filing cabinet, and the reconstruction of a number of body castings. Likewise, he takes over the methods employed at the psychiatric hospital of La Salpêtrière in Paris in order to document their case reports. Thus Viver takes his proposal of the “Révélations” book to the exhibition space of the gallery. His book was published by the RM publishing company and sold out a few months after being released, having been awarded the National Prize for the Best Art Book by the Spanish Ministry of Culture in 2016, and also the ArtsLibris Award. Some of the last available copies of the book will be on sale at the exhibition venue.”
