Regina Gimenez 'Taula' at Muxart Espai d’Art i Creació Contemporanis (Martorell)

07 Oct 2022 - 08 Jan 2023

Regina Gimenez participates in ‘Taula’ [Table] with her recent “Picnic” series (2022), an exhibition curated by Paulina Muxart in Muxart Espai d’Art i Creació Contemporanis (Martorell).

The exhibition brings together a selection of works by Roser Agell, Sabel Banal, Svantje Busshoff, Curro Claret and Regina Gimenez that invite us to reflect on design, art and the different social uses of the table, amplifying its definition.

For a while now, Regina Gimenez has been focusing her attention in different types of materials that have become obsolete, that can be found both in the graphics of the scientific-technical publishing field and among everyday objects. From this origin, her artistic intentionality makes the pieces found by her take a turn that connects them directly with abstract language. In the course of this research, she came across picnic tables, a paradigm of modern functional design that brings domestic comfort in to the outdoor space. Gimenez, taking advantage of these references to the modernity, extends her gaze towards certain plastic styles that revolutionized the 20th century, placing these tables in the middle of the debate between the found object and the abstract work, the original and the manipulation.
