  BERNARDI ROIG
Museum of Contemporary Art, Gas Natural Group, La Coruña, Spain

"Verblendungszusammenhang," a Retrospective

February 24 - July 8, 2012
Curated by Fernando Castro Flórez, this exhibition provides a review of the work of Bernardi Roig from the mid 90's to date. Drawings, sculptural figures, and installations that play with the notion of theatre and video are organized thematically rather than chronologically, creating "something more than a retrospective, an archaelogical investigation into the essential Roig." The chosen title references Theodore W. Adorno's identification of the illusion and deception of capitalist society's collective consciousness, creating a clever and intelligent dialogue with the motif of blindness often employed in Roig's work.
