The work of Spanish artist Angel Vergara (°1958) is concerned with continued research into the power of the image. Through performances, videos, installations and paintings he tests the limits of art and reality. He questions the way the contemporary image shapes our own reality. Every work is an attempt to break through the image and to make its impact come to the surface, on an aesthetic as well as a socio-cultural and political level. Decontextualised images of reality are mediated by the artist and transformed into art. Vergara’s work is the result of a constant dialogue between the artist, the ever transforming reality and its image. He creates a kind of reality ‘in-between’. In this process, the viewer is encouraged to question their way of perceiving the everyday, and the way it is presented to them in an avalanche of images.
