[Exhibition] “Architecture and me” Juan Carlos Bracho at Alcalá 31 Madrid

The exhibition “Architecture and me” presents a set of works carried out by Juan Carlos Bracho between 2003 and 2018, which deal with relations with architecture. Likewise, the exhibition also includes a series of works designed specifically for this project, configuring not so much a retrospective exhibition as a work in progress, usual in the trajectory of this artist.

The work of Bracho has as its main tool the drawing, but uses techniques or equipment of the drawing itself, but also video, photography or performative character. It is based on the perception and creation of beauty, and his work can be placed in the orbit of conceptual practices.

The sample includes three large groups of work: on-site interventions carried out in the room; drawings, photos or models of unpublished projects or still in process; and reincarnations and variations of past works. To all this are added the workbooks of the artist, which are shown for the first time in public, setting up an exhibition that does not close any reading, but opens up to the experience of the viewer, of that “I” that we are each of we.

Juan Carlos Bracho (La Linea de la Concepción, 1970) has investigated as an artist about spatial issues and the relationship between the spectator and places and, more recently, about the derivations of drawing and the circularity of contemporary creative processes. His work includes video, photography, installation, performance, sculpture, drawing and artist’s books, setting up a production with a strong procedural character.
