The Gallery of Solitary Beings

Triptychs based on The Stereoscope of Solitary Beings (Juan Rodolfo Wilcock)

Appropriating the wonderfully strange world of the Argentinian writer Juan Rodolfo Wilcock, The Gallery of Solitary Beings presents a series of portraits inspired by the characters that inhabit Wilcock’s short surrealist fables in his Stereoscope of Solitary Beings. As Wilcock puts it, these are “whims, insane peculiarities and moments of chaos”, extraordinary beings who are condemned to the ordinary, revealed to us in this series of triptychs in which the author’s rebellious spirit and a deeply theatrical sensibility can be found.

The installation is presented either on its own or in association with the show The Stereoscope of Solitary Beings.

Dans l’univers absurde du poète Wilcock, un centaure amateur de peinture croise un ange déchu, une poule lectrice mange les manuscrits qu’elle n’aime pas et un couple décide de passer sa vie au lit quitte à s’entre-tuer. Un bestiaire décadent.

(L’hebdo du Vendredi Reims, Fanny Lattach, 06/02/15)

From the beginning, when the audience was waiting for guidance for entry, the pictures hung on the wall already set a fundamental atmosphere of bizarreness.
