Eden Garden


Nov 24-Dec 15, 2022

Cesc Abad

塞斯克·阿巴德Cesc Abad的个展「伊甸园 Eden Garden」正在上海恪理画廊展出。

全新个展“伊甸园 Eden Garden”是针对我们社会生活范式的开放性探讨——我们的社会可以生活在反乌托邦吗? 正如西班牙艺术历史学家Mònica Marañón在策划此次展览中所表达的那样,如果我们推翻达尔文的观点,可能会出现这样的情况。似乎文明的顶点并不是为人类设计的,而是为那些能够发展出比人类更有效行为的动物设计的。

Cesc Abad's solo exhibition “ Eden Garden” is currently on view at Caelis Galeria Shanghai.
Artist has been started painting natural scenery under the influence of post-impressionism, later he focused on expressive painting with symbolic significance and began to explore his own identity. It can be said that his relationship with art formed a special connection through constant exploration.
Cesc’s style is due to his special interests at the relationship between human and nature, and he found his tool in the brush-stoke of post-Impressionism and the story line of symbolism to express his inner thoughts. Cesc uses painting and sculpture to explore the boundary between dystopia and the pure dream world, and it is pretty easy for you to feel his passion for art in his works.
His latest solo exhibition “Eden Garden” is an open exploration of the paradigm of our social life -- Can our society be living in a dystopia?As Spanish Art Historian  Mònica Marañón said, If we reverse the Darwinian approach, it may happen that what seems to be the apex of civilization is not designed for man, but for animals capable of developing more efficient behaviors than those of human beings.
Cesc Abad's work allows us to enter a kind of garden of Eden where each element lives in communion with its environment, and at the same time, makes us reflect on the dangers of technological advances that can mutate parts of an animal body, in a traffic light or a gun.
Perhaps we are facing an involution of the species, where the true outcasts of the planet will be the men and women who observe the desires of the animal species. Perhaps we are facing a new dystopia that allows us to reflect on our role in the world, as a satire of human behavior. Perhaps, Cesc Abad is inventing a world, to talk about ours.
