SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, 5 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) –
Until November 30, La Casa de Venezuela in the Canary Islands is hosting an exhibition of photographic collages created by ‘El Niño Sombra’ under the title ‘Caminantes e itinerarios’.
The exhibition, which is made up of around thirty small-format works, can be visited from Monday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Through series such as ‘Postcards and lies’, ‘Words and shadows’ or ‘La Prisa’, among others, ‘El Niño Sombra’ proposes a journey through imagined territories through which they pass, oblivious to their surroundings, a series of characters reconverted by the magic of photography into silhouettes or shadows.
These scenarios, devised as if it were a game in which humor, irony, poetry, mystery and social criticism are mixed, have been made through a meticulous process in which they are used from reflex cameras to various computer software and applications for photographic retouching.
This results in images in the form of postcards or stamps with a vintage aesthetic that combine old elements such as typewritten letters, old pieces of paper or cardboard, catalog cards and Polaroid photographs with nods to contemporary digital culture, among which the icon stands out. location of Google Maps or the symbol of the ‘like’ of Instagram.
In addition, some of the works that make up the exhibition incorporate interactive content that can be accessed by scanning QR codes.
‘El Niño Sombra’ has also recently been selected to participate in the traditional Christmas Market of the La Guayaba room, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where he was also part of this year’s summer collective.
