Abyssal reflections

22/06/2022


With large windows overlooking the Bay of Santander, the Botín Centre is the ideal place in which to hold Ellen Gallagher’s first exhibition in Spain: a dialogue with the Atlantic Ocean by means of compositions presenting multiple layers of materials inspired by the ecosystems, the history, and the symbolism of oceans. Whether through a denouncement of the exploitation of environments, a reminder of human trafficking and the slave trade, or an exaltation of the transformative power of the sea, critical reflection constantly impregnates a kaleidoscopic pictorial and audiovisual selection of pieces that will be remaining on view throughout the summer until 11 September.
