Exhibition "exiles, borders, rootlessness" of Carles Vergés and Víctor Sunyol

Pictural and literary exhibition

From september, 7 at november, 25, 2018

Openning: Friday, september, 7, at 7pm

Exiles, borders, rootlessness of Carles Vergés and Víctor Sunyol is the new temporary exhibition that is presented at the MUME. A proposal in which pictorial works (Carles Vergés) and writing (Victor Sunyol) are complemented in order to create an emotional approach, almost lyrical, but, at the same time, also rigorous in the experience of exile. His work has a documentary base (photographs, drawings, films and oral sources) related to the Republican withdrawal and experiences in the Roussillon concentration camps where hundreds of thousands of those who started the exodus were located of the Republican defeat in Catalonia in February 1939.

In particular, the pictorial work of Vergés travels from figurative and narrative drawings to the most abstract and symbolic pictures. The sheet (the first and last wrap of the person and the symbol of the home and the privacy lost), the line (border, limit, step, partition, confrontation...), roots or omnipresent eye are some of the reasons articulate this suite.
