Chema Madoz

Spain (1958)

Détournement poétique


Full of humour and absurdity, Chema Madoz’s still-life works are much like a reflection of his own inner world. His fascinating compositions of familiar objects create visual poems that introduce visitors to a world of fantasy that blurs the boundaries between fiction and reality. By hanging a cloud on the branches of a tree and dropping a protractor on the horizon, Madoz transfigures these common objects in a reverie that defies the laws of physics and reality.These images are exhibited on the façade of Holdigaz, on a monumental canvas sheet stuck in large format on the company’s windows.
