I´m still learning

A solo show by Jonathan Baldock

Baldock’s starting point is the drawing by Goya of the same title (I Am Still Learning), which shows an old man walking along with great difficulty as he leans on two crutches. The image initially conjures up the will and the need we all have to continue to learn despite the shortcomings of old age. However, what Baldock is mostly interested in is the feeling of humility it expresses in today’s context of anthropocentric crisis and the urgency of adopting a listening attitude towards Nature. Baldock is presenting an alternative reality from which to recover our ability to connect to the elements, synchronising once again with our natural surroundings and, in the wider sense, with the planet itself. I Am Still Learning is an imaginary, queer scenario located in another space-time which transports us into a universe of healing.

Mayflower

A dialogue between Javier Cruz and David Horvitz

Mayflower is the second episode of the series An Involuntary Trace, curated by This Is Jackalope in Room A in 2021.

This proposal presents David Horvitz and Javier Cruz, who share the ability to communicate complex ideas through exhibits which at first glance appear simple. Addressing the work of both artists is like facing life itself; in its apparent everyday guise, their production puts the viewer in touch with the essence of deep thoughts that are transmitted through gestures of great poetic impact.
