Iván Franco

Cortegada, 1979

Period of residence in Piramidón: since november 2015

Work: Acting as a bridge between the comprehensible and the visible aspects of reality, these parameters serve to make the observer aware that what the representation presents is a lack of reality, an allegory of death, a manifesto of non-existence. When viewed from a mythological standpoint, the personified icon unmistakably stands as the quintessential example of a simulacrum. Through a process of pedagogical assimilation, we come to believe that certain iconographic entities exist when they are actually nothing more than products of the collective imagination that has given them form.
